Norwich Cathedral Peregrines Activity Log 10/04/2019

Lovely day for some peregrine watching! It was a busy day due to the family event at the cathedral. The BBC local news crew even came to have a look. Hopefully we have inspired the next generation of bird watchers!

Weather was nice and sunny but with a cold wind.

7.41 GA is seen over the cathedral close chasing a black-backed gull, with prey in her talons she then returns to the very top of the spire to pluck it.

8.10 GA leaves the spire to swoop over the Dean's House. She does several circuits of the spire and then returns to the West side of the spire 3 crockets down from the top. Meanwhile the male is incubating.

9.45 No change.

10.10 The male and GA swap incubation duties. The male sits 2 crockets down.

10.15 The male takes some food from the larder and lands 4 crockets down and eats it.
