PEREGRINE RE­SEARCH

Bird Watching (UK) - - News Wire -

Pere­grines may be us­ing ar­ti­fi­cial light to hunt by, ac­cord­ing to a study by Not­ting­ham Trent Univer­sity. The team stud­ied three Peregrine nest­ing sites, in­clud­ing the Univer­sity’s own New­ton Build­ing nest, and ob­served the fal­cons bring­ing food to the nest in the hours of dark­ness. The prey was mainly small to medium sized birds, and the team is un­sure whether these were hunted at night, or brought from a ‘larder’ that had been stocked ear­lier.
