Peregrine Falcon

Peregrine Falcon
02/09/2013 to 05/09/2013
Castle Headland, Scarborough

News from a friend of mine Adrian Ewart, altered me to a new female Peregrine around the Castle Headland, a few weeks after the old female had last been seen, which is hopefully great news for future breeding, as the last 2 year nest sites have failed.

After further investigations by Adrian it appears that the female is from East Lancashire and is from a brood of 3 from May 2012. This I am told, unfortunately makes the female a little young for the 2014 breeding season, but fingers Crossed.

On further news of Peregrines in Scarborough, it seems that a new pair have possibly taken residence on the North end of the Grand Hotel.

Excellent news for birders, but not so good for the local Pigeons!!
