Visitors to Kilmory Village Hall on the Isle of Arran were recently treated to the successful hatching of three hen harrier chicks live on CCTV.
The live nest camera is proving fascinating viewing; we've seen the male harrier attempt to brood the chicks – something that has not been seen on Arran before.
Go wild on Arran and join us at the viewpoint to watch the young family grow.
This year, the Malham Cove peregrines chose the nest site they last occupied in 2004, and at the end of March/beginning of April laid four eggs.
Two of the chicks hatched, and visitors to the viewpoint can regularly see Sophie and Joshua (named after the grandchildren of two of our volunteers) at the edge of the nest ledge eating and exercising.
As well as watching magnificent flying displays from the parent birds, we also regularly see little owls, great spotted woodpeckers, redstarts, green woodpeckers (feeding on the Meadow Ant colonies), treecreepers, goldfinches and spotted flycatchers.
We're taking Exeter peregrines to Plymouth for our Springwatch Festival on June 9.
Come and find us in Plymouth City Centre Piazza were you'll get to see footage from the live peregrine webcam, plus join in with a range of other fun activities throughout the day.
The recent RSPB/BBC North West Tonight competition to name Manchester City Centre’s four peregrine falcon chicks attracted hundreds of entries. The winning names are:
Sora - the Japanese for SkyPerry - as in Peri-grinePhoenix - because of the rebuilding after the Manchester bombingsEggwin - named in honour of United goalkeeper Edwin (Eggwin) van der Saar.
The fantastic four are expected to make their maiden flights within the next fortnight. We hope you can join us in the City Centre to watch Manchester's peregrines.
The three eldest hen harrier chicks are now preening and their adult feathers are starting to come through.
With five lively harrier chicks to feed, the female has been spending less and less time at the nest and is now hunting and bringing voles back for her young.
As they wait to be fed, the young are spending much of their time in the shade at the edge of the nest.
The Isle of Arran is also home to red deer, golden eagles, and red squirrels. Join us at our viewpoint in Kilmory Village Hall to see some of Scotland's most iconic wildlife.
