A big thank you to everybody who purchased a copy of the book, it has now sold out.
The Peregrines have been successfully breeding now for the last 6 years. After the tragic death of our original falcon in July 2020, a new Peregrine has since moved in, and 2021 has proven to be another great year, with 4 chicks surviving to fledging.
- the adult peregrines incubating the eggs for over a month
- the eggs hatching and the chicks first feeds
- the adult peregrines bringing food to the growing young in the nest
- the chicks developing from white downy bundles into their juvenile plumage
- the juvenile falcons fledging after 42 days and taking their first flight
Peregrines are known to stoop (dive) through the air at speeds of nearly 200mph (320kph) making this protected species the fastest creature on the planet. Read more about the Peregrine Falcon and how this incredible bird of prey started breeding in Woking.
