Not a sighting but something that may be of interest. I will update the ringing page with wild bird rings found with metal detectors by members of the South Wales Peregrine Monitoring Group at Peregrine eyries within Breconshire. This is part of an on-going 25 year study of the breeding ecology of Peregrine within our South-Central Wales study area.

Was suprised to find Great Tit tapping on the inside of our (un-lit) wood-burning stove this morning. As the door was opened a very sooty looking bird made a bid for freedom by flying upstairs before being ushered through the bathroom window.
