  • Blog Post: Bath birds set record

    The peregrines nesting on St John's Church in Bath have certainly been busy this year as they officially take the British record for the earliest breeding peregrines in the UK in 2011. By 18 March they’d laid four eggs, beating all other peregrines by a fortnight! And from next Monday...
  • Blog Post: An unexpected visitor!

    It looks like our Bath peregrines are proving to be a handful even after they've fledged. A few weeks ago the female chick, CV, disappeared. She can usually be found on her favourite perch on St John's church, sat with her brothers, but she went missing for a couple of days. Then Mike Rogers...

    Hello. Good news. I've got two little chicky P's. P junior has finally started getting his own dinner and even sharing it with the family. Now there's the difference a week makes. He's making his old man proud. It's not often a peregrine like me gets a babysitter. Just goes...
  • Blog Post: And they're off

    World record holder Usain Bolt may have broken all records when he ran the 100m in 9.58 seconds. But, he's got nothing on the peregrine falcon . At their fastest, these aerial masters of the sky have been recorded flying at a breathtaking 100m a second. That's 10 times faster than the fastest...

  • Blog Post: Bad news at Bath

    Sad news from Bath I'm afraid. Whilst three of the peregrine eggs in the nest hatched out successfully over the Easter weekend, unfortunately egg number 4 didn't. It's a real shame, but we're sure mum and dad will have their hands full feeding the three youngsters that are left. We'll...

    Hello. Time for another update by me, your local peregrine. On Sunday, the chicks went for a little stroll!!! I'm not too sure where they went but when they were back they had some cool new bangles like me. I think people call it ringing. Here's a picture Ed Drewitt gave me of one of my chicky...
  • Blog Post: Battle of Bath

    There was quite a ruckus in Bath over the weekend with a new female peregrine arriving and making a challenge for the territory. Our ringed male, AA, showed why he's top dog by chasing the intruder for ten minutes before locking talons with her and tumbling through the pure blue sky. After he'd...
