Raptor Nesting at Arapiles

We're well into bird nesting season again at Arapiles. A party on Revelations report on TheCrag that they were attacked by a falcon. It's probably a kestrel because they nest on Revelations.
Noddy has reported falcon activity around Harlequin Cracks.
i haven't checked but the other usual suspects (Cassandra, Eurydice) are probably also occupied.
So... avoid them until they stop nesting - somewhere from beginning to mid-December

There were a couple of raptors circling around Eurydice area the other weekend while we were there. I saw parties do both Eurydice and The Desired without getting attacked, but the birds were there.

They generally nest in the bird-poop-stained niche about 2/3 up the first pitch.

You'll certainly see them flying around. I was climbing in that area a bit in the last week and while some were flying about I didn't see them land on the cliff thereabouts.
If you want to check out an area just stand back from the cliff and observe for a little while - you'll soon see if they're going to or from a nest.
