I've just noticed the Nottingham Peregrine Falcons are Nesting again! Smile

I've had a peek at the Salisbury ( Here ) ones, but couldn't see any Falcons on the nest yet - though one was sat on the railings admiring the view!.

A few days ago I thought that the eggs had been left uncovered for a long time. Then I read the recent blog about the pair.

"20th March: Last sightings of the female (Mrs P) followed by reports of a dead peregrine found in the City Centre.

22nd March: Initial observations and lack of subsequent sighting suggest that the dead peregrine is indeed the female from the NTU nest. Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust are liaising with Natural England to confirm cause of death. Mrs P is a long-serving female at this nest and has been very successful at raising chicks over the years and will be missed by many fans. A new female peregrine has been spotted at the nest site bowing with the resident male (Archie). This courtship behaviour suggests a new pairing may be formed soon."

How sad!!! But, hopefully the new female will stay around. I've just had a look and she is sat at the end of the walkway at the moment (with the male on the eggs) - so it looks promising!

For those interested:-

"7th April: A second egg has been spotted in the nest laid by the new female (P9). That makes four eggs in total, two by the previous female and two by the new female."

That's wonderful I hope they all survive.
