My first sighting of this lovely pair this year
Seems as if the silly Pidges from yesterday have moved on

Glad those pigeons have moved on, mind you that might be why the peregrines chose the spot - nothing like ready meals.
Lot to learn
In reply to gaynorsl:
Ha ha Gaynor, good thing there are so many of them!
Hugging the scrape, egg coming?? Normal track record is from 16th onwards!
In reply to WendyBartter:
Can't decide if this is first egg??
Peregrine unconcerned & perches on girder
Well Wendy, not being in the know about these birds, I thought in the first video that an egg was underneath the one bird perched on the side of the "nest" Now it looks as if it has smashed or been trodden on, - - or do you mean the black blob small in the box?
From what I can make out on further observations of this bird Gaynor, the splodges in front of the nest are just where she poos, saw her doing it earlier! The blob in the nest which I couldn't at first make out ... don't think it's an egg, more likely some leftover prey or even a pellet! IMO
Earlier this evening I saw this Pidge pair chancing their wings again ...
They had wisely disappeared by time Peregrine pair arrived ... this is the current scene ...
Quick visit, still no egg, overdue by past records!
2 eggs at St Johns in Bath.

Three now at Merton but problems with YT cams, possible fourth one tomorrow!
Really expected to see first here but she nicked off again
FIRST EGG @ 23.53 yesterday ... bit of grainy vid is still cooking!
