Peregrine 2012 Season - Part 2

I received an email telling me that the Peregrine were back. They had changed the location of their nest site which was very hard to locate. They are now some 250-300 feet up in quite an obscure location. You have to know where to look to stand a chance of spotting them.

I returned in late May and to my delight, the male had found a new partner and they had produced 3 chicks. On my first visit, the chicks had white downy feathers and were grouped together on a ledge.



The chicks were beginning to lose the down, revealing the feathers beneath.


One of the adults was standing guard on a perch near to the nest site......



whilst the other was hunting......





Not far from the nest site was the plucking station and larder.



Part 3 will show the progress in June and will posted in the next few days.

Good morning Ed,

Thanks for your reply. Yes, these were with the Bigma. It would be impossible to get these images with a shorter focal length due to the distance involved.

... I'll second that!

Let's hope that big flint nodule above the nesting site does not come loose, or we will end up with smashed chicken
