Peregrine falcons in Helsingborg
Information - the breeding season 2005
The Peregrine couple did not produce any eggs in 2005 either. Therefore we decided to help the falcons this year too. Two coloured hens´ eggs were placed in the nest on April 29.
On June 6 (the Swedish national holiday) we replaced the eggs by two ca 18 days old Peregrine chicks named Grynet (a female) and Linus (a male). It was very successful and the old falcons accept the chicks immediately. It took only 45 seconds before they were back in the nest box.
The youngs fledged by the end of June and were observed around the nest during the summer, but after this there are no sightings of them reported.
