A pair of Peregrine Falcons are currently resident in a purpose-built nest box attached to the water tower at Adastral Park.
The newly bonded pair are as new to each other as they are the park, with the male arriving in October and the female joining him in late January. Based on observations from the last six years it was expected the pair would move on from Adastral around February, but the decision was made to try and tempt them to stay at the park by providing a nesting site. A nesting box was attached to the water tower and since then the female has laid 3 eggs, which have now all successfully hatched.
