Marion Nash Reports:

Got a call today from ADM Mills. The resident pair had an unwelcome visit from 2 juvenile peregrines and the 2 got into it heavy in their nest box. While the resident adults watched. The victor an unbanded bird killed the other peregrine but her talon got hooked on of all things the band of the other and she was fastened tight and exhausted. Doug went up to see if he could help out and when he opened the door on the nest box she renewed her struggle and managed to get free. Doug was able to get a band number from the as K over 27. Sadly it turns out that it was Red Bud a female that was produced at this site in 2015 and banded last May.
