Marion Nash Reports:

Thanks to all the staff at Pickering Nuclear Generating Station we had another successful banding of 4 healthy peregrine nestlings. It was wonderful to see so many staff June 9th 2017

out to be part of, watch and assist us in the banding. Not only for their help in accessing the nest with a lift truck and operator but to navigate us through all the security and safety requirements to get this work done. Thank s to everyone involved!!!

Here is the information and photos of the newest addition to the OPG PNG peregrine family.
