No peregrines round the back of our Asda Col. A few hoodies..( not crows )What I might see going round the city cycle path, taking in part of the Water of Leith walkway...
Redwings (last of them still around)
Song thrushes (numbers seem to be recovering)
Woodpigeons (probably more of them than anything else)
Lesser black-back gulls
Curlews (currently occupying the rugby pitches)
After they arrive, I hear warblers such as willow warbler and chiff-chaff, but I rarely get a good look at them. I also hear a tawny owl from time to time. I don't see peregrines on the cycle path, but I can sometimes see them if I go down and round the back of Asda's car park...
I have some photos somewhere of a Buzzard being mobbed by Crows Jackdaws, Blackbirds , gulls and other smaller birds.I was watching a buzzard on a thermal yesterday,From my sitting room chair..as I followed the buzzard with my bins ,I noticed above it, a Peregrine on the same thermal.
