Better than I manage in London although when I was close to the Tate Modern the peregrins were nice to watch at lunchtime.

Default Peregrines

*chilternbirder .Better than I manage in London although when I was close to the Tate Modern the peregrins were nice to watch at lunchtime. *


I found this....

See the amazing peregrine falcons at Tate Modern over the summer as the resident pair have returned to their perching site on the iconic chimney. Astonishing Londoners with their extreme flying speeds, you can see the peregrine falcons at Tate Modern once again over the 2010 summer holidays.

Birds of prey
Not normally a place associated with wildlife, the Tate Modern has become a favorite summer hunting spot for a pair of peregrine falcons, who return to their original nearby nesting site every year. Perching up high on the art gallery and former power station's chimney, the pair of birds of prey are always a sight for sore eyes.

Nice to know that they are back, I did wonder if the scaffolding a year or two ago would frighten them off. Trouble is that the height of the chimney means that to be far enough away to see the top without a sore neck requires a decent scope or bins.

Hi Allan

That is a great all round list that you have there

Talking about Peregrines - I remember living in Edinburgh (my home-town) many years ago, and I lived on the 4th floor of a block of flats. Being on the top floor, I was level with the church spire over the back bowling green, and a pair of peregrines happily nested in the church belfry (or x-belfry as there was no bell).

Talk about a room with a view - it was a fabulous place for spotting the Peregrines hunting and nesting, and I have never forgotten about it at all. This was in the early 80's, and I was as bird mad as I am now.

Great way to remember experiences with BoP's

Regards
Kathy

Impressive though peregrines are to watch I think the tree sparrow is probably the more exciting. The last time that I saw any was nearly 30 years ago on a trip to Northants.

We regard the Tree Sparrow as probably our rarest visitor.
