    Who is in the corner ,looking somewhat distressed ?

  • wendy pearson posted a new activity comment 1 month, 1 week ago

    She had been looking upwards and calling for food for some time ,she meant to go,it wasn’t an accident.Do hope she’s safe

    • Accidental or not it was the worst possible way to fledge. If it flapped its wings on the way down, facing the cathedral …….

  • And she’s gone ,at 18.50

    Looks like we’re in for another hot day here in Norwich ; hope parents will take time out from their fun in the thermals to feed their chick,and maybe give some protection from the heat of the sun.

    Solo is looking quite distressed … as it’s about 5 hours since the last feed could she/he be dehydrating on this warm day.?

    • It is very hot here in Norwich, so small regular feeds would be best if possible
      🙁

    Thank you J.P.That explains a lot, doesn’t it

    during the period that GA was so agitated and vocal ,and flying off and returning several times. norman returned and briefly settled on the chick ,for maybe 5 minutes,when GA returned ,and very noisily sent him packing .There was no food involved in that period

    the entire family appear to have been agitated for several hours . Are there intruders in the area ?

  • wendy pearson posted a new activity comment 5 months, 1 week ago

    Yes I did ,thank you both for all of that.I guess the untrained eye doesn’t always read the signs that you more experienced people do. What a shame no one was able to catch the food pass .

    • The food pass that I saw on 4 February was a blink and you missed it moment. At 08:08:39 ‘Norman’ was alone on the platform with his gift for GA. One second later GA showed up took the gift and left.

      • As Chris stated at the time – “he is showing GA what a good hunter and provider he is and that he should be the father of her chicks.”

    Thanks for that … interesting times to come

    Not a lot of obvious courtship on camera ,as there has been at Bath .Have those amongst you ,who visit the Cathedral, witnessed any off screen courtship ?

    • I think there has been regular courtship behaviour between Norman and GA for some time. Maybe they’re a confirmed couple now while the Bath birds were later to start and are still cementing their partnership?

      • Thanks for that … interesting times to come

      • The Bath birds have been a pair for ages so their partnership has been standing for years. As JP said the courtship has been happening since the last eyass was taken away and it gets stronger with every passing week. Sadly the camera angle is so narrow that 99% of what happens at the Cathedral is missed

      • The Bath pair have been together,settled and apparently very comfortable with each other .I have been watching them closely now for a few weeks. So far I have seen very little of any courtship. However apparently a ‘food pass ” took place today[Sunday 19th feb] reported by Chris -unfortunately no photograph to see who passed food to who since…[Read more]

    • Courtship behaviour between ‘Norman’ and GA started in the 3rd week of June and has been seen on the webcam ever since. Screenshots of bowing displays have been posted on the forum every 4 days or less and a screenshot of a food transfer has also been posted.

      • So far JP the level of ‘courtship’ you refer to has been limited compared with the Bath pair who appear to have started a bit early this season both together chatting for a good few minutes in the scrape ,touching beaks having both bowed .

  • seems to be lots of courtship on camera at Bath.Not so much in Norwich,have any of you witnessed off camera courtship around the Cathedral

    Yes I certainly was ,I rarely post ,but learn so much from watching and listening . Thanks to all of you for your updates ,and amazing photos.
