19-07-2012 : PEREGRINE WATCH, BATH

If you are on a Canal Boat Holiday in Bath this weekend why take part in a unique opportunity and join the Peregrine watch.

The peregrine pair, which have now returned to a nesting platform on the spire of St Johns RC Church for the seventh successive year, originally laid four eggs but one disappeared.

The first egg successfully hatched on 1st May when one chick was observed as the female left for a brief break.

The two remaining eggs then hatched, but one chick died, leaving the pair with two surviving nestlings.

Telescopes are positioned on the Lower Close green in Cathedral Close where members of the public have the opportunity to observe the peregrines and talk to volunteer staff.

Usually you will have great views of the peregrines flying in and out of the nest site in South Parade.

This is especially true at the moment as the youngsters require increasingly frequent deliveries of food.

Do not miss the opportunity whilst on your Canal Boat Holiday to explore the city.

Walk in the footsteps of the Romans at the Roman Baths, hear the stories from the people who lived and worked there 2,000 years ago.

For fashion lovers the Fashion Museum hosts a world class collection of contemporary and historical dress.

Included in the display are 150 dressed figures to illustrate the changing styles in fashionable clothes.

The Royal Crescent, Bath is one of the worlds best known landmarks.

Built between 1767 and 1775 it was designed by John Wood the younger.
