Sutton peregrines - Sunday 12 June. Dad is active.

Rather quiet this morning. Weather was dull and calm. There was no wind to assist the youngsters. 

A squirrell chewed on a banana skin nearby:

Grey squirrell
When I arrived there were 3 chicks all together on the edge but by the time I had taken my camera out they had moved. Two chicks look at the male on the ledge below them:

"Here, Dad! Go and catch us some breakfast!!"
The male peregrine flew twice but the female just relaxed! The male brought back something both times. First it was a medium sized bird and he threw it to the chicks. The second time he caught a swift and ate it himself!!

"Right, this one's for me!"
