Marlow’s Peregrines Update

December 2023
Some excellent detective work happening today, thanks to David Bevan and Neil Richards, who have been very patient trying to get a 📸 shot of the coloured ring on the visiting 1st year peregrine that has been seen at All Saints’ Church Marlow this week. Not one of ours so we were intrigued where it came from 🧐
Turns out this plucky little bird is from Bath, she was ringed in May this year. She was one of two that hatched from a clutch of three. She fledged on 16th June and was subsequently recovered wet and grumpy in the River Avon, rescued by Bath Fire & Rescue’s Animal Rescue Team on the 18th. She spent the night receiving some expert TLC at the West of England Falconry’s Bird of Prey Hospital and returned to her nesting platform on the 19th. She stayed for a few more months then fledged proper.
She has been nicknamed ‘the Avon Lady’ by David 💚 We hope she likes it here in Marlow and stays around for a good while🤞
