Bath Peregrine winter 2008/2009 update

The adult female, AA and AC (photos below) are still present at on the Church. AD went missing soon after fledging although she was recently photographed at the Church (photo below). There still seems to be no adult male present and the likelihood of breeding this year seems to be slim, fingers crossed though.

Ed Drewitt has continued to identify the prey remains from the Bath peregrines. This winter has seen the usual of array of species taken, which included little grebe, woodcock, jack snipe, snipe, golden plover, water rail, teal and redwing. The remains of a redshank were found towards the end of 2008 and represents the first documented redshank taken at this site.
