    According to BBC, two birds of prey nested on the 24th floor of a 27-storey building in Petershill Court (which is due to be demolished), have risen what is believed to be the city's first ever peregrine falcon chick. The chick left the nest on the 12th July.

    Local resident Steven McGrath described how he first spotted the birds: "I'd noticed the peregrines were spending a lot of time around the flats.

    "As the first block was due to be demolished I was concerned the birds might be at risk if they decided to nest within them, so I decided to contact RSPB Scotland and others for advice.

    "I've never heard of these birds breeding in Glasgow so I wanted to do everything I could to make sure they were successful."
