25-04-2012 : BATH PEREGRINE FALCONS EXPECTING CHICKS

A pair of peregrine falcons that are nesting in a church tower in Bath are expecting chicks.

The birds first nested in the spire of St John the Evangelist Church in 2004 and have returned each year.

Mike Rogers, from the Hawk and Owl Trust, said the female had been sitting on a clutch of eggs for almost a month and it is hoped that the four chicks would hatch this weekend.

The RSPB said that Peregrines are protected birds in the UK and that their numbers were still low.

Book a Canal Boat Holiday from Hilperton and Cruise along the Kennet And Avon Canal to Bath and pop along to St John the Evangelist to see if you can spot the peregrines.
