“Sandra Hall & Tim and Feah Bowery had the honour of naming this year’s female Peregrine Falcons. Tim has been involved in the project from the very start and we couldn’t have completed the project without him. Massive thanks Tim!!  Our new vicar at the church gets a peregrine named after him – albeit the female version of Tobie!”

“I’ve had a tough morning lying on my bed controlling our cameras to record the ringing of our x4 eyases!! Meanwhile Seb Loram had the job of driving up from Torquay area, climbing the tower, ringing the eyases, putting them safely back in nesting box. Not bad for 10.00am.”

Exciting day as our x4 young peregrine eyases are having their colour rings fitted today!! Will we have our first female? News later. Seb Loram is licensed by the BTO and will do the honours this morning. I have the easy job of lying in bed watching the ringing process on my phone! Pictures later.  Chicks loving breakfast this morning.

Fab to see the fab 4 peregrine eyases on top of the tower!! All 4 are doing really well. In a few weeks they have a very dangerous time as they leave the safety of the tower.

Although all 4 chicks are doing well, we seem to have one chick that can consume a huge amount of food. Just look at the size of its belly and crop, no doubt it will be first in line for the next meal in a few hours time.
