2016 was a good breeding season for the Bournemouth peregrines. 3 of the 4 eggs that were laid hatched. The adults raised these chicks well (2 males and 1 female) and they successfully fledged.

The image below shows the brood of three not long before they took their maiden flights in 2016.

1 female 2 males

Note: The 2017 chicks were ringed on 16th May. There are 2 males and 1 female this year, the same as last year. The chicks are doing well and are very mobile so may not be seen on camera all the time.
