Woking’s peregrine falcons have made a welcome return to their Woking nest box to raise a new family for 2019!
The Woking Peregrine Project is a community project which supports a pair of peregrine falcons nesting on top of Export House in Woking Town Centre.
The project had another successful year in 2018. Three of the four young peregrine chicks that hatched were successfully reared and fledged. Sadly, the fourth juvenile bird experienced multiple injuries after it fledged and was rescued twice. It was cared for at Wildlife Aid Foundation initially, before being moved to the Hawk Conservancy to continue its recovery prior to re-release.
The quantity and quality of the webcams that keep a watchful eye on the birds has increased since the project began in 2016 and now you can watch excellent footage of the drama live as it unfolds by visiting www.wokingperegrines.com or following @wokingperegrine on Twitter.
