When you look at it like this it does seem scary, but not that simple, thank god. Not all Peregrines will breed every year, for those that do survival rate is 1:4, and they will not start to breed til 2 years old. They will not always make a kill, infact there are more misses than hits, but it can lead to losses.

 

I believe there are more than 1400 pairs, even double. The main prey is for inland birds seems to be racing pigeons, but those on the coast it is sea birds, they are more in abundance than pigeons. The problem is there are those in non-natural habitat enviroments that are causing the worse damage.

 

Of course if everyone did their bit ................
