It is often (wrongly) thought that the female does all the scraping, but in fact it is the male who gets things started, often making a fair bit of noise while he does so in the hope of getting the female to "come and have a look".  

It can take some time to persuade her, but when she does arrive, the two birds often carry out the "bowing and scraping" display to each other, which is a good sign that all is well. 

Once she is completely satisfied with the venue, she will usually set about finishing off the Scrape herself, in readiness for egg-laying.

Keep an eye on our Falcon Cam which features three cameras allowing you to keep up to date with all the activities of the Woking Pelegrine Falcons.
