Science / project plan

The study, initiated in 1981,  is focused on population density, territory occupancy, production of young, prey selection, nest-site selection, monitoring of pesticide contamination, and reduction in eggshell thickness. Since 1985 breding peregrines (mainly females) have been banded to collect data on turn-over in the breeding population. In 2012 - 2015 a number of Peregrines will have dataloggers attached.
