I’m interested to see that Natural England has issued licences for falconers to take 2 Peregrine chicks from the wild in order to establish a stud book of British Peregrines.
I’m not sure how I feel about this.
I would like to know what are the licence conditions and from where it is envisaged that these Peregrines will be taken. Presumably not from the uplands of England because there Peregrines are not doing too well, as opposed to in lowland and urban areas where they are thriving (on the whole).[registration_form]
