Peregrine falcon

 

...the female (I think) incubating the four eggs in the nest box on St. George's Church (11th April). Shot with the Web cam, screen capture and processed in Lightroom.

Elle a choisi un drôle d'endroit pour pondre ses œufs J'espère que tu nous montrera les petits
Tom Wilson: That is a "nesting box" provided by the University smile You will see the little ones on Wednesday.
She is keeping an eye on you Tom!
Tom Wilson: A wary eye on all the surroundings!

It is a gorgeous raptor, Tom!

And...just look at that lovely tongue&groove carpentry...
Tom Wilson: They are very handsome birds, Ray, and clearly, someone did a proper job on the nest box!

Absolutely in her element
Tom Wilson: Apparently she spends a lot of time at the top of the Arts Tower, which I showed earlier - one of these days I must get out and try to get a shot of them.
I see it has the badge of its favourite football team on the side Tom.
Tom Wilson: Nope, that's the university's coat of arms, Chad - although Sheffield Wednesday's badge has some similarities.
I watched an eagle cam for a while and enjoyed it . Are you watching this one?
Tom Wilson: Yes, I'm keeping an eye on it - I watched the Decorah eagles site some time back and got a picture - http://tomwilson.shutterchance.com/theme/25-birds/image/2012/03/04/decorah-bald-eagle/
Must be a good webcam Tom
Tom Wilson: Yes, you'd think so, wouldn't you? I did just a little tweak in Elements to adjust the exposure - otherwise it's straight off the screen!
Even in this motherly pose - she looks quite intimidating!! Such an amazing looking creature!
I believe there are similar birds being encouraged to live like this in derby and Leicester.
