  • Blog Post: Who's the daddy Cardiff?

    The three Cardiff peregrine chicks are going strong and it looks like there isn't just a new male in Chichester this year - there's one in Cardiff too! Our local peregrine expert has confirmed that this year's dad is a different male to the one who's fathered the chicks in previous...

  • Blog Post: Settling down to family life

    After causing all sorts of confusion last week, it looks like Cardiff's peregrines are finally settling into family life. Both parents are back at the nest (who knows where the male went or why the female was letting one of last year's chicks babysit) and the team finally got their first glimpse...
  • Blog Post: Three become two

    We only told you about their arrival on Wednesday , but there's some sad news from Cardiff I'm afraid. It seems that the last week of torrential ran and colder temperatures has taken its toll on the peregrine chicks and one of them hasn't made it. Luckily the two remaining chicks are looking...
  • Blog Post: Keeping us guessing

    How many chicks are there in the Cardiff peregrine nest? That's anyone's guess at the moment! There's definitely one strong healthy chick that's been spotted strutting his stuff in the nest, but we still can't see if there's any more chicks hiding out of sight!
  • Blog Post: Chicks a-plenty!

    There's been a bit of a baby boom for our Dates with Nature this week. The three Manchester peregrine chicks were the first to arrive, with the first two chicks making their appearance on 4 May and the third on 6 May. We can't confirm whether the fourth egg has hatched or not, and many people...
