George and Mildred

About three years ago a pair of Peregrine Falcons were spotted flying around the tower of St Georges Church on our campus. In 2010 a nesting platform was erected, and last year they nested and had two chicks. You can see some pictures of them here.

Now our EFM department have put a web cam up so that we can get a glimpse of George and Mabel. At the moment it is only a glimpse as they are not there a lot - presumably they are out catching pigeons. But soon they will be nesting, and we should get some good views. Of the nest, any eggs and chicks, and I'm told, gruesome pictures of pigeons being devoured.

Here's a picture I took yesterday evening of Mildred on one of her quick visits.

Are you sure it's Mabel? I thought it was Mildred.

Yep, you are right. I have changed it - I don't know why I keep calling her Mabel....
