Falcons Come To Town

Falcons Come To Town

Once a rare sight for birdwatchers, peregrine falcons are now increasingly living & nesting in our cities. Nests have been seen at London's Tate Modern, Manchester's Arndale centre and Durham and Chichester Cathedrals. As top avian predator, able to reach speeds of over 200mph, the falcon's main prey are pigeons. There are now approximately 1,500 pairs across the country, 24 of which live in London.


What an amazing site that would be :-)
