We closed the Peregrine site up yesterday, the bottom path has now been reopened and the top path closed off. It has been another successful year at Operation Peregrine with the two eyasses fledging the eyrie and now well and truely flying around the gorge. We have had some great views of the eyasses chasing the adult birds around the gorge hoping to get some of the prey. They are still around the gorge but not as frequently as they were after they fledged. They will eventually be chased out of the territory in early September and have to go and find their own territories.
Thanks for keeping up to date with all the activities at the Peregrine Watch and following this blog. It has been a real privilege to see Peregrines so close up and a great experience for me.
I would like to thank all the volunteers for all their hard work and without their help Operation Peregrine would not be a success. If you would like to volunteer next year get in contact with the Scottish Wildlife Trust on 01555 665262 or drop in at the Visitor Centre around March next year.
