Thank you all for the warm welcome. One thing that does concern me and i remember it angered my grandad was the amount of peregrines in our area. South west scotland has a high number of breeding peregrines apparantly. I dont really want to spend the time and money starting up a loft if my birds are going to get picked off by falcons. Does anyone know how many breeding pairs are in my area, if its a high number then im not sure i want to start up. I was very attached to my birds back then and i dont know if i want to go through the stress of losing hem to predators. I know that some will get lost but the fewer the better. I live in the KA26 area . thank you in advance.
As others I have no idea how many peregrine's reside in your area mate but unfortunately birds of prey are a big problem for all of us these days. I mainly have Sparrow hawks around me (South Coast of England) and do loose a few birds around the loft each year, we do have a lot of Goshawks on the race route especially in the New Forest and there are perigrines in most major towns and cities along the coast. So sadly it is a problem that isn't going to go away any time soon.
