Another visit to the cliffs to see how the Kittiwakes are doing. I was pleased to see that some of the usual nesting ledges (if you can call them that!) have been occupied, but can't objectively assess whether the population has fallen further - my impression is that it has.
Note in diary.....revisit in a couple of weeks, to see the chicks.
Chaos reigned when two Peregrines flew around the nest cliffs, but after a number of passes they moved on towards the docks - I've seen one perched on the cliff above the entrance to the Eastern Docks in the past.
One of the rarer species under the cliffs is Oxtongue Broomrape, of which this may be an example (I've not tackled the subtleties of broomrapes). There is a colony here, but much of its area has been covered by a small rock fall, so I hope that they survive. Any broomrape experts out there?
