Mr P the Bath peregrine V
Hello folks. Its time once again for me to give you an update on how things are going in Bath . The weather has got a bit cheerier now so Mrs P has been able to stop brooding and come out to hunt. This means we can start doing one of my favorite activities. The food pass. This is where we hand...

Peregrine Pursuit at Symonds Yat
Well, they had us fooled. Due to a limited amount of hunting witnessed and very little food seen going into the nest, all of us observing on top of Symonds Yat rock were under the distinct impression that we had one, maybe two, young Peregrines in the nest. Oh ye of little faith. We were wrong. Last...

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!

Peregrine progeny perhaps?
Well another Bank Holiday weekend is upon us and it’s high time I brought you up-to-date with the goings-on of Symonds Yat . Our young Nuthatches have flown and the viewpoint has become markedly quieter in their absence. We’re going to miss them. Nevertheless, I’m delighted to report...
