The pair nested with three chicks surviving from a clutch of four eggs. At 22 days old the chicks were fitted with identification rings by Middle Thames Ringing Group. The orange colour-rings with large black letters can be read by a camera or telescope. So it is hoped to learn where these chicks disperse to over their lifetime.Such data will add to the scientific understanding of the peregrine population's survival, longevity and dispersal pattern, helping to formulate strategies for their conservation.
Thanks go to Marlow All Saints church for supporting Wild Marlow's efforts in this conservation success story.
Editor's note: Post-fledging, one of the chicks has been seen on St Luke's Church, Maidenhead.
