Even when it his light at 6:00 the pigeon doesn’t move and the male Peregrine seems oblivious to it’s presence and flies off at 6:40. The pigeon still remains and it is not until the male arrives back at 6:55 does it feel as if it has pushed it’s luck and flies off safely – for now at least! It spent over TEN HOURS on the ledge.

He hops around the platform looking for scraps then sits on the ledge, leaving at 18:05. At 18:35, the adult male arrives with a Starling. He looks around, most probably for the juvenile but with no sign at 18:40, he plucks and eats the prey. Half way through he is disturbed by the juvenile that snatched the remains from him, takes the prey to the corner, mantles it and proceeds to eat. The adult leaves hastily. The juvenile has finished at 19:15 and sits on the ledge, flying off at 20:10. There is no further activity this evening.
