2018 Peregrines

This was the first breeding attempt for this pair. Although a covered, clean gravel area was installed on the tower roof, the pair opted to nest on one of the Hunk Punks on the outside of the tower.

An egg was laid but following heavy rain the slight depression in the gargoyle filled with water, the female attempted to move it out and towards the edge. Unfortunately she only succeeded in pushing it over the edge and the egg fell to the ground. Amazing, the pair seemed to realise their mistake and about a month later 2 more eggs were laid on the gravel area and incubation began. One egg hatched, a male, and he successfully fledged in August having been ringed blue “TT” .

There have been no reported sightings since TT left the area late in 2018.
