1926: Schiermonnikoog (an island) - Nest on the ground in the dunes. One juvenile (ringed *) (*ringed = banded)
1930: Rottum (an island) - Nest on the ground in the dunes. 3 eggs. One egg was taken as evidence. Breeding failed because of heavy storms in which sand covered the nest.
1949: Hoge Veluwe (forest). Nest in a fir tree, four metres above the ground. Adult peregrines alarmed and attacked. On June 3 two juvenile birds flew out.
1950: Hoge Veluwe. Nest again in tree, 3.5 metres above the ground, 350 metres away from the place of the 1949 nest. 3 eggs. Three weeks later the nest was empty. A few kilometres further there was a nest found in a tree (7-8 metres high). 2 eggs; for unknown reasons the nest was deserted. Possibly the same birds.
1954: Hoge Veluwe. Couple of adult birds were seen. No more data.
1955: Hoge Veluwe. Probably breeding. After some time there was seen a calling juvenile peregrine with two adult birds.
1956: Hoge Veluwe. Nest with 3 eggs; disturbed by carrion crows.
1973: Harskampsche Zand (forest). A female peregrine was seen. Later on also a male peregrine. Both were calling and were seen several times that summer. Possible breeding; no nest found.
1976: Harskamsche Zand. Adult female was seen. She was calling loudly. At the same moment an adult male was seen; he was calling too. That day the male was also seen giving prey to the female. No juveniles seen.
1977: Harskampsche Zand. Two juvenile peregrines were seen. They were quite dexterous. To rest they used the poles of the high tension network. Beneath it were a lot of prey remains.
1978: Harskampsche Zand. Two adult peregrines were seen. Breeding unknown.
1979: Harskampsche Zand. A female peregrine was heard and seen. In a few minutes a male was with her. Later in the sesaon two juvenile birds were seen that almost couldn't fly. The female bird was there also.
1980: Harskampsche Zand. Two peregrines were seen. No alarm was heard.
1990: Maasdal, Midden Limburg (forest). Juvenile peregrine was seen.
1991: Harskampsche Zand. An adult couple was seen.
1991: Maasdal, Midden-Limburg. Nest (old one from crow). About 40 metres high on the outside of an old factory chimney. Two juveniles. Both parents were breeding; mostly the female.
1991: Noord-Drenthe (forest). Probably breeding. Couple of adult birds were seen near a pole of the high tension network (crows-nest). Some days earlier an adult peregrine was seen chasing away a young one. Later in the season the crows nest was pinched by a buzzard.
1992: Radio Kootwijk en Omgeving (forest). A couple was seen. No reason to believe that these birds bred.
1992: Maasdal, Midden-Limburg. Near the location of 1991. Again a couple was breeding on an old crows-nest in a pole of the high tension network (60 metres high). One juvenile. Another juvenile was found dead in the nest. The female peregrine was wearing a blue and black coloured-ring.
1992: Noord-Drenthe. Possible breeding. In the same area as the two birds were seen in 1991.
