Recent images of the adult birds

Ian Bradley (aka superbrad) took these photos last week of our parent birds. We are grateful to him for letting us use his 'super' images. You can see more by going to the Derby peregrines flickr pages.

Apparently at least one juvenile has been seen recently but with so few people watching from the ground now, reports are few and far between. We would expect that the juveniles would have begun to move away from Derby - so hopefully they are beginning to lead an independent life.
Meanwhile, the Rolls Royce team that has been working with us since February is drawing up its final reports and I will be attending a handover session at their works within the next two weeks.
