I know its old news to some but I have seen a Periguine Falcon pair? on the Holy Trinity Church for the last two days. There is always plently of debris laying around from thier feeding but does anyone think they will nest?
Most UK Peregrines are well into the breeding season by now, with their chicks close to fledging. If your local pair haven't nested this year they may well do so next year :)

In reply to aiki:
Thanks for the reply.
I assume it's a pair as one is slightly smaller than the other one? It's all very exciting as you can hear them calling quite frequently but it's the first time I have seen them this year.
In reply to red:
Yes, males are visibly smaller than females. They could be a young pair sizing up a potential new nest site - they may well hold territory until next spring and then attempt to breed. Fingers crossed!
