Local volunteers required for round-the-clock watch on nesting PEREGRINES

PC Charlie Everitt of the National Wildlife Crime Unit is appealing for assistance in keeping watch over a pair of Peregrines nesting on the outskirts of Edinburgh. This nest site has been robbed at the chick stage several times in recent years, and it is hoped the presence of volunteers may prevent or detect this if it happens this year. The site is thought to be particularly vulnerable in the evenings and/or early morning. If you think you can spare even a couple of hours over the next fortnight or so, please get in touch with Charlie at Charles.everitt@nwcu.pnn.police.uk.

Help most appreciated!

Thanks, Ian
