3 PEREGRINE

Bird Watching (UK) - - Destination London -

How could I talk about London birds with­out a men­tion of the fastest liv­ing thing on earth? London’s high rise build­ings are not dis­sim­i­lar, from a bird’s point of view, to cliff faces and pro­vide per­fect nest­ing sites for the Peregrine. From their lofty res­i­dence these ae­rial preda­tors can look out for pi­geons and other pass­ing birds, be­fore mak­ing their deadly stoop at speeds up to 200mph. A pair reg­u­larly nests at the Tate Modern, and in the breed­ing sea­son, the RSPB is on hand with a tele­scope to help you en­joy the ac­tion.
