Sex Education

The Eastern Evening News yesterday reported the following about its 'Falcon Cam'

"Female peregrine falcon lays first egg of nesting season at Norwich Cathedral"

Really! Methinks that schools Sex Education lessons need some revision.

There must be something terribly subtle that I'm missing here.

If it said 'Male peregrine falcon lays first egg' that would have been worth the headline.

Sorry but I seem to be missing your point here.

Perhaps those readers in Norwich do not know that female falcons lay eggs.

Whatever the case, I have noticed the nest building activities around my area as increased over the past few days, including and during the change of weather conditions.

There's even an increase of the usual trend of twitcher's around Rutland Water, including their falcon's return!.

Nope - it's got me beat!

Ah. Got it. Why does the headline say 'female'?!
