Sun 9th Aug

While putting the sheep back out onto the crag this afternoon, after working on them, sorting any foot problems and other bits and bobs, there was a Rock Dove resting up on the ground. As we got closer to it, the bird took off. Unknown to us, a Peregrine was watching on too, possibly the reason why the Rock Dove was on the ground in the first instance! The long and the short was that the Peregrine attempted to catch it but did not succeed, it tried twice but with no joy.
