Peregrines in Peril – update

Maltby Pit

Thanks to those who replied with suggestions as to how best to deal with the threat of demolition of the tower at Maltby Pit.  It was great to see that RSPB Senior Investigations Officer officer Mark Thomas picked up the cause and looked into matters today, including a site visit: an impressive response.  While prey items were taken to young Peregrines on the tower at Maltby Pit last spring-summer it seems that they were juvs that had fledged from a nest not too far away, at a site not threatened by the planned demolition.  Fingers crossed they are successful again – Mark is certainly keeping an eye on them.
