Noardburgum – For the first time since very long ago, peregrine falcons are nesting in Friesland province again.

In the nestbox, which is 40 meters high on the power plant at the Burgumer Mar, a falcon this Wednesday has laid an egg.

The male half of the breeding pair is, visible from the coloured ring on its leg, one year old.


Unfortunately, there is wildlife crime against raptors‘ nests in Friesland. One can alarm the police about that at phone number 09008844 or 08006070.

Banding young peregrines in the USA: here. After the banding: here. And here.

120,000 Amur falcons massacred in 1 week in India: here.
