@SheffPeregrines Mating twice within minutes, not sure if this is normal mating behaviour for this year or has she decided not to lay eggs due to the intruders and they are strengthening the bond for next year.https://youtu.be/nq_O-u7dXGI

Are the intruders still around, not seen any myself since I've been watching more regularly? BB seems to favour spending nights on the perch facing the city lights & wider view! Having trouble with lengthy recordings due to freeze issues, have missed a lot of action!

She certainly does seem to be avoiding long spells in the box, not like last week when it all looked hopeful?
BUT ... there are several sites around the Country still awaiting first eggs & others who have only just laid first ... so definitely not too late should things quieten down again at Sheffield!
