Aylesbury Peregrines - 2017

Unfortunately the breeding attempt by the Aylesbury Peregrines came to a sad end when the single chick was found dead under the tower.  It was thought likely to have flown into the building on one of it’s first flights.

So that will be the end of he breeding attempt this year.  Hopefully they will return next year with more success.    Comments on the recent activity can be seen at Aylesbury Peregrine Project website.
