Urban Peregrines

Urban Peregrine on her nest by Dave Pearce
With Peregrines found in most large towns and towns in the UK, I will explore the habits and behaviours of these urban converts.​

Duration: 60 to 90 mins plus break

I have been studying Peregrines since 1998, when I first came to Bristol. Before then, I had only seen Peregrines miles away on the mud of a Kent or Sussex estuary. Realising there was a lot to be learnt from Peregrines living in the cities I began studying their diet. More recently I have been colour-ringing their young to find out more about their lives. 

Throughout this talk I will be exploring what makes an urban Peregrine tick, why they are using our towns and cities and what we are finding out about them, including their unusual hunting behaviours.
