Not long before it all starts over again.

Is it alright if I post a link to a story about the Brighton peregrine falcons? I can't find a thread for the Brighton Peregrine Falcons, or a way to create a new thread. Perhaps a mod could create one for the Brighton Peregrines.

Their nestbox is under threat - due to maintentance work on the top of the building where their box is located.

This is the article in our local paper:

http://www.theargus.co.uk/news/4861732.F...hton_home/

And the petition can be found here:

http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/PeregrineFalcons

If you haven't already signed it, perhaps you would like to, in a bid to help our Peregrine falcons in Brighton.
Thank You

wave soph9: I saw a bird perched in a tree at Beacon Hill Park yesterday. At first I thought it was a Cooper's Hawk, because they have had several nests in the park the past few years. When I looked at my pictures, I started thinking it looked like a peregrine falcon. Can you or someone here please tell me if it is a peregrine falcon (or what it is)Puzzled Thanks. I've posted 3 photos with different poses.
