Aylesbury Peregrine Project  In Association with Bucks Bird Club
Every year we gets lots of questions, the main one about the eggs being left. To reassure you all please see the message below from out experts. It is perfectly normal for the birds to leave eggs and indeed young chicks on their own for varying periods. When the first few eggs are laid this can be for some period of time- it doesn't matter if the eggs get cold at this stage. They only start incubating in ernest once the last egg is laid ( hopefully 4 ). One of the birds is usually very close by in these periods of absence (perhaps within 15ft), so there is an element of protection but you just can't see the bird on the camera.

Sad News

The 2017 breeding of Peregrines in Aylesbury has ended on a very sad note with the loss of the chick. The parents had done a good job in raising the chick after the egg hatched very late until on Sunday 11th June the chick looked very strong and the adults tempted it to fly, it fledged just before midday. In the afternoon the chick appeared to be doing well and at about 4pm it was high on County Hall on lmost the highest bit of the roof. Unfortunately first thing on Monday 12th June the chick was found dead below the East side of County Hall, effectively below the nest site. It appears that the chick may have collided with the building. The bird has been donated to The County Museum. Here's hoping for a happier breeding season in 2018 when the new male bird will be more mature and we should see more eggs. The project team.
