Ringing the Peregrines

We've heard that the Salisbury chicks will be ringed on Friday 22 May. Ed Drewitt, Phil Sheldrake and Gary Price, the Cathedral's Clerk of Works, will be up in the Tower, with correct social distancing and use of face masks of course. Good plan! The nest tray will have a quick clean up and a lot of prey feathers will be collected for analysis too, whilst the adults are kept in flight for the briefest period necessary to complete the ringing safely - for men and birds.
