    07:37 Falcon just gave the chicks a lengthy feeding and left the remains
    behind. PZ dragged it to the back of the platform and he and PX are picking
    the carcass clean.

    The sunrise shining through the raindrops on the spider web is gorgeous.
    Good job, Spidey!

  • 05:44 – Solo is staring up at the spire and screaming ” I know you’re up
    there, get down here with my brekkie!”

    AA thinking that retirement’s looking pretty good right now.

    Correction – I said they were getting the white feathers on their
    heads They’re not! Silly me, I was watching them on the
    infra-red camera.

    Polly, I love it that you’ve got you grandson involved – I don’t
    have any grandkids, but my cat likes to watch with me.
    She scared of GA, though.

    • Morning KIttycanuke like you I have cats two very large Maine coones.given the size they are such a gentle breed and very affectionate.

    Imagine buying a cuckoo clock and having that pop out every
    fifteen minutes!

    Morning, Polly – just wanted to let you know that the eaglet that was
    rescued in Washington did have blood tests while it was at the vet
    and it is a female. It’s name is “Honor” and the other is “Glory”. I was
    watching them this afternoon and they have reached the “helicopter”
    stage, so fledging can’t be too far away. They’re also getting…[Read more]

    • Hi Kittycanute I have been watching the birds,sometimes it looks as if they are about to fall. The nest doesn’t seem big enough. I have even educated my small grandson he is fascinated wanting to watch all the time.

    05:53 Noisy breakfast being served. To foggy to see much but the
    screams woke me up. HOT should have alarm clocks made with
    GA’s voice and sell them in the gift shop – I think they’d be a popular
    item among parents of teenagers.

    • Morning Kittycanuck just looked in on Norwich solo still enjoying a hearty breakfast.Think it’s GA doing the the honours this morning,whether male or female it looks as if it’s going to be a big bird.

    • Love your idea for the GA alarm clock, Kitty. Let’s face it, GA is hardly going to feature on one of those birdsong clocks, is she?

    GA arrived and fed the chick and has been sunbathing on the ledge, still
    clutching the remainder of the kill. Chick is in the corner by the camera
    pole, in a food coma.

    • GA left with the remainder of the kill at 16:34. ‘Norman’ showed up for a couple of minutes at 16:40.

  • Kittycanuck posted an update in the group Group logo of Norwich PeregrinesNorwich Peregrines 2 days, 14 hours ago

    05:22 Solo has just been fed by GA, who left shortly after. Norman is now
    on his favourite ledge, enjoying the morning sun with his little one.
    Norman looks very healthy and rested, so different from the frazzled dad
    of last year.

    That spider really gets around – it was on a camera in Wales yesterday!

    I guess he learned that being a gent doesn’t pay off when he has
    three greedy sisters who don’t leave much for him.
    Have they really not been fed in the intervening twelve hours or is
    nobody else commenting today? I do realise that people in the UK
    have more important things on their minds after the horrors of last night.

    After Norman did his usual rapid-fire feed, when he was having
    a few bites and chirping to the chick – do you think he was
    showing her how to self feed? I didn’t think to look at the
    overhead cam while it was going on.

    Based on no ornithological expertise whatever, I’m sure Solo is female.

  • Kittycanuck posted a new activity comment 3 days, 3 hours ago

    I’m so glad that GA has become less anxious and can now spend
    some time just ” chillin’ “with her firstborn.
    It’s fun to watch chicks when they’re becoming aware and curious
    about the world outside the nest. Norman should be very proud
    of himself for getting both GA and his chick to this stage.

    Gosh, she is getting big! She must have got her mum’s plus-size genes.
    She seems to have learnt to stand up and walk much earlier than her
    relatives at Bath.

  • Kittycanuck posted a new activity comment 3 days, 10 hours ago

    She managed a flap/hop that took her about a third of the
    length of the platform and when she landed,she stopped
    dead as if she was thinking “well that’s different!” Then she
    went straight to her old brooding corner.

    She’s certainly developing well, but I can’t help worrying about
    what it will be like for her after she fledges and has no…[Read more]

    As I said, I came in near the end. PZ may have enjoyed an
    hors d’oeurve and a glass of wine before he let the girls in. ☺
    They all seemed happy in the end but if KP was lurking and
    hoping to score some leftovers, he was out of luck.

    07:02 arrived near the end of a feeding. PZ was behaving like a perfect
    gent, waiting in the alcove while his sisters were fed. Falcon saved some
    big choice chunks for him.

    • well thats interesting Kitty! He is the one who leads the charge usually lol!
