Peregrinat­ions

-

The peregrine eggs should hatch between May 5 and 7. This is a fortnight later than eggs at Salisbury Cathedral because the Chichester pair were very slow to settle. The female had a new young mate and there was a lot of problem with the ravens nesting close by. The male brings food for the female but he is only a teenager and likes to have the best pickings first. The ravens seem to have disappeare­d, they have probably already taken their young away.
