Peregrine Falcons

9 Sep 2013

Both adult Peregrines are in residence and often seen in the sky over Sussex Heights. This year's youngsters are still making regular appearances on the roof, though less frequent than a month ago.

The young, which have now been flying for about 11 weeks, should be able to hunt & fend for themselves. Whenever they do return, you may notice the parents encouraging them to leave. As they become totally independant, the young will disperse, probably within south-east England, though occasionally they may go further afield.

We hope to follow them in the future since each youngster was fitted with an individually numbered colour-ring. Any sightings of colour-ringed Peregrines are always gratefully received.
