New Season Breeding Activity at Our Bath Urban Peregrine Project Site

Bath Peregrines
Our Urban Peregrine Nest Platform at Bath

The #bathperegrines have started off the 2015 breeding season with some early courtship rituals. We’ve been observing their behaviour on and around the church from ground level and on the Bath UPP camera since early in January. Now is a good time to make your way down to South Parade or the riverside walk as we are anticipating increased interaction between the pair as they enter the breeding season proper. In previous years we have been treated to a great deal of courtship posturing, calling and some spectacular low level food passes over the heads of observers. The Bath and West Wilts Group regular Sunday watch will start at the end of February/beginning of March and we always welcome volunteers to help. No experience required – if you are interested please let us know by leaving your name in the ‘comments’ and we will get back to you with further information.
