New Menu Item

Another addition was made to our peregrine falcon's prey list today, with the finding of a bar-tailed godwit corpse below Derby Cathedral's tower. This was in addition to the remains of other more frequently taken wild birds. The godwit now takes the Derby menu list to a total of 37 different species. The larger female peregrine takes bigger birds up to the size of ducks, whilst the male takes smaller ones, down to the size of swifts and wagtails. (posted on behalf of Derbyshire Wildlife Trust)
