Peregrine Falcon on the Salisbury Cathedral Spire


We have been enjoying the nesting Peregrines at Salisbury Cathedral on BBC Springwatch this week, and yesterday we were in Salisbury for my father's book launch - and were able to catch a glimpse of one of the Peregrines for ourselves.


We had not taken binoculars with us but, as you can see, we were able to see the Peregrine with the naked eye. It was a thrill to see the adult bird circling round the spire and heading off and coming back. I do hope this last remaining chick survives...

We've been watching them on Springwatch, how exciting to see them in real life! There seem to be fewer peregrines in Edinburgh now than there were a few years ago
