The peregrines in Bath should be about to lay eggs now. The pair in Brighton have already laid their clutch but others across the country still haven't.

The young bird from last year is still hanging around - it was seen bringing in a pigeon the other day. It looks like it is a young female. If you manage to read the letters on its colour leg ring please let me know what they are!

Spring is almost here!

As we edge closer to spring, the Peregrines in Bath will be laying eggs towards the end of the month.

The pair in Bath are frequently near or on the nest box and may be seen calling to each other or mating.
