About this Event

GRMG Presents: City Peregrines with Nick Dixon.

Nick Dixon has been professionally involved in raptor research and conservation since 1995. He has specialised in studying Peregrine Falcons and has monitored their increasing occupation of the urban environment over the last 25 years, and is now considered a leading authority on urban Peregrines in the UK.

Nick's main study site is St. Michael's church in Exeter, where he has monitored the breeding Peregrines in detail since they first bred in 1997. This fascinating talk includes the history, ecology and habits of the Peregrine Falcon in the UK, plus some amazing findings from a quarter century of studying the fastest creature on the planet. As a result of Nick's observations, the Exeter Peregrines have achieved notoriety through their extreme territorial aggression towards Buzzards over-flying the city. Nicks talk includes amazing footage of this unique behaviour.
