Peregrines and Church Towers

I wonder if peregrines are deaf - or at least the ones nesting in church towers. I went to see the Derby Cathedral peregrines and the noise of the bells was too loud for me on the ground let alone right up by the bell tower!

Deaf birds

Yes I agree. The bells ring regularly & the birds are not one bit bothered at all by the din!

Peregrine Hearing

I haven't managed to find any authoritative research on the hearing of peregrines - but several websites claim that their hearing is accute.
Be interested to hear if anyone has found a more authoritative website quoting proper research on this issue.
