Date at the Tate Peregrine Falcon Watch

RSPB volunteers with telescopes and binoculars will bring these amazing birds closer to the public.

The star peregrines, Misty and Bert, have successfully fledged three chicks this year, two females and a male.

The chicks will soon be learning to fly and look after themselves.

The birds perch on the raised brickwork near the top of the Bankside Power Station chimney. They are creatures of habit and spend hours on the chimney, making it an ideal point to watch them.

London now has more than a dozen peregrines that have arrived naturally in the city and decided to stay. Not all have successfully bred this year. One new arrival is a female peregrine that has identification rings on her legs. This has allowed the RSPB to track her back to the south coast. She hatched on a traditional cliff-edge nest in May 2007.

The RSPB is asking visitors to show their support for our native birds of prey by signing a pledge calling for tougher action against those who continue to illegally persecute them.
