The two juvenile peregrines at Malham are now fledged and flying well. Visitors to the viewpoint are being treated to some brilliant talon touching displays, as well as other aerobatic demonstrations.
Having just mastered the ability to land in trees with some accuracy - narrow ledges will be the target over the next few days!
Last weekend the peregrines at Lincoln Cathedral had a lucky escape when one of the young was found on the bonnet of Porsche car.
After being checked over by staff from a local wildlife hospital, the young peregrine was returned to a ledge just below the nest site on the Cathedral, unharmed from the ordeal.
All the family are doing well, and are visible from the RSPB viewpoint.
Experience the day-to-day life of one of our rarest raptors through breathtakingly close CCTV camera footage of a hen harrier family.
Visitors to Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park have already been treated to amazing display flights, or ‘sky-dancing’, from the Clyde Muirshiel hen harriers on our guided walks, and seen TV highlights from previous years.
With the live pictures from the nest now rolling, get even closer to this amazing family and their four chicks.
Don't forget there is a free bus running to Muirshiel Country Park from Lochwinnoch every Saturday from 16 June-23 July 2007. If you would like to book a place on the bus, please call the Park on 01505 842803.
We are pleased to see that the harrier family has survived the last few days torrential rain intact. The eldest three chicks have passed the three week mark and are now looking quite powerful. The smaller two chicks are also growing up fast.
Feeding time at the nest has become very exciting as each chick jostles for food. Guided walks and nest camera viewing continue at Kilmory Hall. Call 07899 675131 for details.
