With our four new chicks appearing to have now fledged the nest, we’re glad that it’s been another successful season.
As most of you will be able to tell from the poll, the four names chosen for the birds are Milly, Molly and Mandy. The names are taken from a series of children’s books written and illustrated by Joyce Lankester Brisley which date back as far as 1928.
These names are in addition to the smallest chick being named Frank Jennings, a man who has worked for Nottingham Trent University’s Estates Department for 25 years and who retires this summer. Among the many things Frank achieved with the university, he built the original nest box that the falcons first began to breed in.
Once the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust are comfortable that the birds have successfully fledged, please be assured that any rings in the nest box will be collected and handed to the Royal Pigeon Racing Association.
Thank you for your interest and we hope that you will continue to follow the falcons next year.
