Peregrines

I wonder how unusual this is as i've also seen a pair sharing a building outside of the breeding season.
It's also not unusual to see dopey Pigeons asleep below them!

Urban peregrines

As Tom Jones might croon...
It's not unusual.

We have a good number of peregrines in Berkshire of which pairs regularly roost together on a Reading office block or here in Bracknell... (then there's the pylons which they like also).

This regularly happens "off season" (in fact more off than on for the Bracknell birds).

Many thanks,
TBR

Thanks. Although the local female used to get a bit tetchy and chase the male away.
The last 2 years has seen only the female return.
