Thousands watch falcon breeding nest

Conservationists from around the world have been hearing how a project running in Aylesbury is having a positive impact on urban biodiversity.

It relates to the successful breeding of a pair of peregrine falcons on top of Buckinghamshire County Council's building.

The district council’s biodiversity team project lead, Paul Holton, said: “Thousands of people from around the world logged into the AVDC website to watch the day-to-day struggles of our peregrines.

"Next year we hope to make further improvements to the cameras, platform and project to enable the public to gain even greater enjoyment and involvement from ‘our’ birds.”
