Doh! Thanks Wendy, and how unfortunate for us both, I had to log off early, to get an early start on hedging.
Hope she stays safe ...
Me too Kate, don't want to be hearing that she has to be rescued!

Half an hour after we had posted this (9.30 am Monday 25th), a call came in that a peregrine was down. It turned out to be the male that had been flying for over a week and not the last juvenile to leave - one of the two heavy females (they were later spotted sitting close together on top of the Silk Mill tower). The male was taken back to the top of the tower. He seems fine when he was checked over so hopefully won't come to ground again.....
Both sides of Scrape all clear at moment.
Oh dear, did see that post on blog & must admit was expecting it to be Little Sis! Glad it was unhurt!
Morning after the BIG event
Good to see adult having relaxing preen in the sun
Sadly the Male re grounded it was rescued and taken in but succumbed to Canker unfortunately.
Do hope the Girls remain free and healthy, and have a good life.
Extremely sad loss Kate, just hope that girls did not feed from infected pidge ... if that was the cause of little man's disease!
