I have always believed that Peregrine falcons were non-migratory but seeing as the Tate Modern's residents seem to haave gone missing perhaps I am wrong again.
Can anybody enlighten me?
Have the Tate birds gone missing in the winter before aand returned in the spring to breed?
Has it been a regular occurrence over the time the birds have been at the Tate?
Hi Sandalfoot I love birds too and have become very interested in peregrines. The Peregrine pair nest at the Barbican but use the Tate to hang out and teach any juveniles to fly. It's so exciting to hear and see them!This pair had one successful fledge on 6 June 2012 and this tercel has been spotted at Alexandra Palace! I also follow the Fulham & Hammersmith pair who have to date 3 eggs! Nathalie Mahieu who is mention on the London Peregrine Partnership is a friend - you can watch it all now on http://www.wildlifewhisperer.tv It's very addictive! The wonderful Wetlands at Barnes also has live streaming http://www.wwt.org.uk/visit/london/wildlife/peregrine-falcons/ I could go on, and on!!! Maggie
