PERE­GRINE

Bird Watching (UK) - - 30 Years Of Birdwatching -

In 1986, the Pere­grine’s steady re­cov­ery from its 1960s low point was al­ready well un­der­way, and it has con­tin­ued un­til the present day, with at least 1,500 breed­ing pairs now found in the UK. More im­por­tantly, it’s be­come much more vis­i­ble – the need to find new nest sites and ter­ri­to­ries has seen it spread be­yond its for­mer coastal and moun­tain strongholds, into quar­ries, power sta­tions, foot­ball sta­di­ums, of­fice blocks and churches. What was once a bird of the wildest parts of the UK has be­come a reg­u­lar city sight­ing.
