Not a sighting but something that may be of interest. I will update the ringing page with wild bird rings found with metal detectors by members of the South Wales Peregrine Monitoring Group at Peregrine eyries within Breconshire. This is part of an on-going 25 year study of the breeding ecology of Peregrine within our South-Central Wales study area.
