Visit to the Catherdral and to the patch...

A lunch stop at the cathredral to catch up with the Peregrine chicks was a good choice!
As i arrived i looked up from the car park of the Adam and Eve pub to see not two but three Peregrines in the sky.I watch as the parents landed and noticed they were getting agitated .I decided to investigate more and drove round towards the main entrance.I then soon got on one of the young Peregrines on the lower part of the building- this expained the parents concern. These two chicks had only just fledged .The young that I was on was the male and looking smart and ready to take to air any time soon.

A quick trip to patch produced 2x LRP on the scrape along with 6x stock doves( cracking bird) 2 mallard duck families-1 with 7 ducklings and the other with 6. A pair of Garden Warblers were in the shrub along the path and a male Marsh Harrier hunting over the marshes .2x Cettis singing & a willow warbler and Chiffchaff were both singing along the railway line. Then 7x Lapwjngs flew over the marsh as made my way over the bridge.

Happy birding
