Busy male Peregrine…

Watching the local Peregrines today, saw them copulating twice, the male was persistently harassing the neighbouring Raven family, half heartedly tail chased a couple of pigeons and saw off an intruding female Peregrine. Saw the female entering a concealed nestsite. They’ve failed to produce young for the last two years, hopefully this year will be different.
