Leicester Peregrines

During work in Leicester I found the remains of a dead peregrine near one of the original conservation nest boxes. It turned out to be a young female that took over the Leicester Cathedral nest site in April 2020. She was last seen alive on 6 September 2020 and has since been replaced by a new colour-ringed female. She is the bird that was videoed having a 2 hour fight on 27th April 2020 – see youtube footage at https://youtu.be/s76WIibCmm0.
