Peregrines Falcons Update

26 Jun 2014

This year the Peregrines have raised another brood of 4 young. This brings the total number raised in this nest box since 1998 to an impressive 46 young. Last year they raised 3 males and a female. This year, they had 2 males and 2 females. The eggs were laid within a day or two of the same dates as last year. The first two chicks (Green 64 & Green 65) are believed to have taken their first flights on 13th June when about 6 weeks old with the others following over the next few days. This is always a risky time for the young as they learn to fly.
