Two Bath Peregrines Have Fledged – Only One Left To Go!

If you weren’t watching over the weekend, you may will be delighted to hear the news that on 14th June at 2.02pm, 42 days from hatching, the first of the chicks (JX – Female) fledged from the nest box at St John’s RC Church.  The following morning (15th June) at 6.24am, the second fledging took place (JZ – Male).  Both made it safely down to the rooftops in South Parade, historically a well-used landing point for the first flights of many of our previous Peregrine chicks.  The third chick of 2015 (JY – Female) is still in the nest box at this point (as of 12.18pm on 16th June), sharing her time between stretching out in her now spacious nest, calling out to the adults for room service (and who wouldn’t) and watching the antics of her siblings on the rooftops along South Parade.
