Bath Peregrine Update: The First Chick of 2020 is Here!

The first Bath Peregrines chick of 2020 is here! Hamish Smith has been keeping a close…

D76R81EXkAEAPxxBath Peregrine chick, colour-ringed ‘TX’, which left the nest box backwards on 18 May having ‘won’ a tug o’ war over a piece of food, was returned to the nest box yesterday. In the interim, she has been in the tender care of ICBP in Newent whose excellent work has brought her to full fitness for release.

Although uninjured, the decision was taken not to return TX on 18 May as there was a high probability that the disturbance could have caused other eyasses to leave the nest. TX appears to have been accepted readily back into the fold by parents and siblings alike.

This is another excellent result on the part of Jemima Parry-Jones and her team at Newent. We cannot thank ICBP enough for the sterling support, in the forms of advice, rehabilitation and pre-release conditioning which they have, and continue to provide to Bath Peregrines.

TX fledged from the nest shortly after and joined her siblings around the church. All four juveniles and both adults were 'on show' on St John's church yesterday evening.
