This evening there was pandemonium in the peregrine household as human beings appeared and took the chicks out of the nest to be weighed, measured and ringed. For a while Mum was very upset (Dad disappeared very quickly – probably couldn’t stand the noise she was making!) but once the job was done and the babies back where they belonged she soon went back and perched on the turret to watch over them. It didn’t stop her flying off for another quick moan now and again though!The result is that we have 2 boys (40 and 44) and 2 girls (42 and 43). Yes we know the number 41 is missing! These are all black rings with white writing.
