Gordon Howe reported that a nest site used by Peregrines in recent years has been taken over by a pair of Ravens this year, a possible explanation being the gradual disintegration of the nest over the period the Peregrines have been in occupation. Now the Ravens have done a good DIY job, it will be interesting to see what happens next year?
It seems a good opportunity to point out that the Gower Ornithological Society has a new atlas in prep and the example tetrad maps below show the breeding and winter distributions of Fulmar in West Glamorgan. I don't have my copy of the 1992 atlas to hand, but I suspect the distribution has changed little for this species in comparison with others. More updates to follow on this project...
