In the short time between visits, the chicks have lost most of their down and now reveal their juvenile plumage. The difference between the adults and the juveniles is still very obvious. The legs and cere lack the yellow and normally white plumage is a shade of brown. They will retain this brown tinge for the next couple of years. You may have heard Peregrine juveniles being described as 'brown' birds.
The conditions were completely overcast, threatening rain, which made photography difficult with a long lens at f10.
The chicks had split up with one close to fledging and sitting above and to the left of the nest site.
and seen here stretching its wings.
The other two chicks were not as adventurous and remained at the nest site.
In the short time I was there, I only saw one of the adults flying above the cliff face.
I shall return tomorrow when the light conditions will be more favourable.
