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...

Lights, camera, action in Lincoln
When the web connection went live at the Lincoln peregrines back in May, the team were really excited to see the peregrines were back and nesting on the south west corner of the cathedral tower. It's just a shame that they decided to set up home in the nest without the camera... The female appeared...

Bank Holiday weekend egg watch
Last thing on Friday, I posted a quick update to let you know the exciting news that the first Chichester peregrine chick had hatched . Well, chick number 1 was quickly followed by chick number 2, who arrived a short while after. The second egg was only laid an hour after the first, so it's no big...

Just been reading about Peregrines and the display they put on for their mates. Dorset and Chichester are just two of the areas you can see this fantastic display. If you go onto website rspb.org.uk/datewithnature/dates.aspx it will tell you places and dates to see this display. It looks like...

HELP? Proposed wind turbines and ospreys - not a good mix?
Hi all, I'll be honest, my knowledge of feathers is limited! I can tell a peacock from a magpie, and a buzzard from an owl but I'm no expert, although I am very fortunate to be surrounded by wonderful friends who keep me company in the garden and around the croft. I count amongst my friends...

Re: Falcons in London's Barbican?
Dear Miss Kimbo. Yes, there are peregrines that can be seen around the Barbican and St Paul's area. John B is quite right in saying there are more than 20 breeding pairs now living in Greater London and we're now in to the breeding season. The pair you have seen will be the subject of our...
