Bucks Peregrines 2018

We have Peregrines breeding on the council offices building in Aylesbury once again and also at the MK Stadium in Milton Keynes.  These have both become regular breeding locations for this amazing species.  Unfortunately the links to the cameras at Aylesbury are not working this year, despite repeated attempts to fix.  So we are very much in the dark as to the progress.  Normally by the end of April hatching of the eggs takes place with fledging in early June. This year we will have to observe from a distance to see how things are going.

As of 22nd May there was just one chick in the nestbox which was duly ringed.    Unfortunately the Milton Keynes pair failed this year.

There are numerous Peregrine sightings on the Bucks Sightings website.  If you wish to view them click on Search, enter “Peregrine” in the Species Name field, also change the date field to say search from the start of the year and you will see all Peregrine records for that period (unless suppressed to protect potential breeding birds).

When we have some positive news on progress it will be posted here.
