In reply to gaynorsl:
Gale force winds again this morning but bright & sunny & dry ... didn't deter Mr K from arriving early to cliff ledge ...
For his second visit Mr K chose to perch on a new branch to left of nest hole ...
The third time he brought prey to nest hole but didn't finish it ... watched him as he flew to scrub to stash it & then to cliff ledge for wash & brush up but didn't get his flyaway!
A little more to keep you occupied whilst the next two days gales & rain blow through ............roll on dry sunny Spring weather ........... nearly time to alter clocks! Lol

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Lot to learn
He's certainly been experimenting with lots of different places to perch these past few days Gaynor, have more vids/pics from multiple visits yesterday & today to edit & upload ... not enough hours to keep up with him!
gaynorsl said:Great videos Wendy, I like his new perch, we had a good view of him preening his chest from there.
Actually was a fourth visit on 11th March to the blossom again, it suits him so well ...
Wasn't finished with visiting either ... came back to nest hole late afternoon to eat his prey under shelter
gaynorsl said:Hopefully the weather will slowly improve again
It has been on/off quite horrendous Gaynor with another really awful day predicted for tomorrow but hopefully will see some lovely calm Spring-like weather next week ... at least Mr K has his nest hole to use ... playing catch-up on visits from past few days now ...
EDIT: such a lot to sort through, will post tomorrow now!
