A pair of peregrine falcons in Scarborough fail to produce chicks
The peregrine falcons arrived seven years ago and their chick-rearing habits had proven a popular annual attraction. For the first year they have failed to produce any chicks.
RSPB estimates there are only 1,400 breeding pairs in UK.
According to BBC, Heather Davison, who runs the peregrine viewpoint for the RSPB, said it was hard to say what had caused the nest to be abandoned but bad weather during the spring and early summer could have played a part.
