We've had some on Norwich Cathedral for several years now. They've got 4 chicks this year

Peregrine Falcons have been nesting at Cann Quarry near Plympton for some years Plym Peregrines. The site includes a webcam.

If you cannot get the webcam to work the gallery on the site contains some great photos.

... all of the falcon chicks seem to be 'house-trained' as they squirt their droppings straight out of the nest ... it must be instinct.

There was a program on television the other day about the River Trent, and along that route there was two large old cooling towers, that had been left due to observation of Peregrine Falcons nesting in the tower's. The reporter was saying that there was reports that the falcon's had now left, but in the program sound track, there appeared to be the calls of falcon's coming from the interior of the tower's?.

The Sheffield chicks are just about ready to fly off, I reckon.
