Any "birders" out there?

Just stumbled across this. Live cam on Derby Cathedral, and at the time of writing there is a peregrine falcon sitting there watching the world go by!

I think I'll duck this opportunity.

Jesus!! I was just sitting here quietly watching when the clock started chiming.

Scared the [-Censored-] out of me.

He couldn't cope with the bird-en of being watched in bed and was feeling a bit peckish, so he flapped off. He is a frequent-flyer after all!

I'm wondering if it gave him the bird Grin

A float tip is pleasing in its appearance and even more pleasing in its disappearance.

Had to laugh at the bit on the above website aimed at iOS users...

 

iOS users may find PuffinBrowser an effective means of viewing webcams that normally require Flash Player.

 

Surely they mean Peregrine Browser?
