Peregrine Falcon / Part 3

The Woking Peregrines are doing well! Both chicks are now 4 weeks old and have been ringed and sexed (by Richard Denyer), one male and one female. Both adult birds are proving to be good parents, sharing duties and hunting successfully.

It was another fun day with Surrey Bird Club in Woking today where we were supporting the Woking Peregrine Project. Penny Williams, Nigel Burke and I set up the stand and covered the first shift 10:00 - 13:00, though Penny had to leave early.  There was a good trickle of people to keep informed with at least 10 finding out about the nesting Peregrines because of our stand. Matt Phelps and Richard Denyer took over from us until 16:00.
