OUR feathered friends have returned to the St Wulfram’s Church tower - and laid an egg.
Peregrines returned to call the Grantham church home once again several weeks ago, spotted on the webcam set up to overlook the nesting box.
Then on Wednesday, viewers could clearly see an egg settled in the tray.
Each year in recent years, peregrines have nested in a box on the tower installed as part of a joint project between the church, The Lincolnshire Bird Club and the Wildlife Conservation Partnership.
Entitled the Grantham Peregrine Project, its progress can be followed online via the ‘pegcam’.
The project is spearheaded by Bob Sheppard, from the Lincolnshire Bird Club. He noticed the egg in the nesting tray on his monitor at about 7am on Wednesday and posted the finding on the online blog.
