20th February 2021

Today the female (?) sent about half and hour on the parapet wall between 12.00 and 12.30hrs.

If your a feral pigeon, its best not to hang around if a peregrine turns up!

15th February 2021

The birds have not been seen for the past few days because of the very cold weather and snow on the nest tray. However, this afternoon the female reappeared in the afternoon sunshine.

At 16.22hrs both the male and female birds appear on the parapet above the nest tray and then one bird (the female?) dropped into the nest tray briefly. The first visit to the nest tray in 2021.
