It has been an eventful season full of highs and lows (mainly highs) ultimately there was a great result; a successfully fledged Juvenile that is doing amazingly well. A big thank you to all of the volunteers and photographers that have dedicated so many hours at the cathedral monitoring the Peregrines. Thank you to everyone that has visited the watch point and supported our work.

As a special treat here is a beautiful piece of art work featuring this years female GA, drawn by the talented Julie Curl one of our long term volunteers.
