Peregrine Ringing

Sunday 4th June, another three young were colour ringed along with the metal BTO rings; this was a tricky site to reach, but the ledge was large enough to allow the ringing to go ahead in-situ.

This is a fourth consecutive season the pair have bred  and over that period 11 Chicks have all been raised to fledging. The ringing carried out under licence and with landowners permission went once again without a hitch, due to good teamwork and planning the climb in advance.

2017 Coastal Ringing

Volunteers from South West Peregrine, carry out a very successful ringing of three Peregrine Falcon eyasses on the North Cornwall Coastline. A second successive breeding season for this pair at the location, once a favourite spot of group mentor Richard ‘Dick’ Treleaven. It was also a chance for young Drew to get up close to these special birds as he helped the team carry out the ringing. Yellow darvic rings with black letter codes are fitted along with a BTO metal id ring. These  darvic rings hopefully lead to re-sightings  of the young and help with dispersal data.
