  1. apologies I forgot to say the second part of my post above concerns the Bath fledglings in answer to Julie’s question above .[there does not appear to be an edit feature for me to insert this correction.

  2. Thanks again for these informative reports of the birds in Norwich .The three female fledgling falcons were on the nest late tonight 22/6 and it appeared they had been fed with fresh kill there earlier -one is still there as I write23.30 .All are plump and well fed looking with beautiful juvenile plumage .The falcon has been seen trying to tempt them with food passes .PZ the male has been sighted and the falcon has been seen regularly flying off in that direction with food but PZ has not been seen back in the nest lately as far as I know.

  3. Wow another busy day. Is there any way to get some video of these going ons? I’d love to see the falcon chick in flight and perhaps flying on or off the nest ledge.

  4. Hi.
    Is there any news on the bath peregrines? All the daily updates seem to be about the norwich peregrines. Just wondering how all 4 juveniles are getting on.
