Kingston College Peregrines 2021

  • This morning the BTO ringed the chicks. Fortunately the rain stopped at exactly the right time and we remained dry.

    Here are photos of the chicks just after I had returned each one to the nest box. I also adjusted cameras 1 & 2 to give an improved view.

    PZS who weighed in at an impressive 955g and is our single female.

    P3S the smaller of the two males, who was 680g

    Finally, P4S the slightly larger of the two males at 685g. P3S was the raucous one of the three.

    Thanks to Phil from the BTO (and his daughter) for attending site and carrying out the ringing. Let's hope all three youngsters fledge successfully.
