Not sure mate, believe they come from the alps???, 100s of birdwatchers all over the roads with their spotting scopes and binoculars. Certainly drawn a lot of interest though. Was around this area most of the day it was there just circling

I wonder if they take sheep though because there are thousands all over the moors

A Bearded Vulture roosting in the Peak District National Park Derbyshire apparently! 10ft wingspan, bigger than a Golden Eagle, must be an impressive sight

They are impressive but that call isn't something you want to wake up too

Bit more hopeful now, mummy and daddy peregrine were eating a nice parakeet breakfast in the pylon when mummy flew off in answer to a distant call.

Edit, at least 4 in the group, possibly 5

Didn't realise that sort of thing was still rife
Must be an impressive sight

A lot of eggs have been pinched too elsewhere in the country. Its normally around this time of year I start seeing them with chicks diving off a pylon

Doesn't look great. There's been licences given to remove a small number of Peregrine chicks for Falconry, maybe that's the reason but unlikely

I was watching the adult pair of peregrines this morning with no young ones present, is this a bad sign? In previous years I haven't seen both until they have the chicks with them

I was out yesterday for a quiet day session feeder fishing for anything.

Loads of little swallows / swifts - not sure which - were swooping down and taking flies off the water. They were ace and definitely more successful than I was all afternoon!

I've seen a couple of groups of Swallow's last few days. Don't know if they've arrived too late to breed though. I believe they come all the way up from South Africa so not surprised they get delayed sometimes!

Last Springwatch

I have spent quite a lot of time watching grebes over the years. Anybody see the discussions about their eggs being able to cope with water? Fascinating really

Brilliant programme with some stunning photography

Lolo Williams like already mentioned, brilliant. Hope he gets the leading role

I like Gordon B too

Cats have a massive impact, thereís a few near me, not to mention ****ting in the garden

Lot of fledglings around me, big family of thrushes, absolutely hammering the snails in garden!

Collard doves, Goldfinches, blackbirds, blue tits and even the sparrows are making a comeback and have all fledged. Saying that, I do get the odd sparrow hawk, bang, cloud of feathers, gone

No sign of any swallows though around me as yet, guess itís not going to happen?

I put some new feeders up this year, they have hammered the seed up to late
