Farewell… but not goodbye!

Peregrine Falcons

After several years of running a successful blog on the beloved peregrine falcons, we’ve decided that the time has come for a new chapter in the project which will involve us passing on the blogging mantle to our partners, the local wildlife trust.

The popular live nest cameras will still be viewable from NTU’s falcon web page. We are instead looking to explore opportunities for research in relation to the birds and Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust has kindly agreed to host comments of the falcon followers on its Facebook page, a platform which is already well used by enthusiasts.

We’d like to thank you all for following our blog and for taking the time to write comments and helping develop the online, global community which it has become. We’ll look back with great fondness on the trials and tribulations of the birds which we shared with you over the years.

We’re keen for this great online community to continue so we hope that you will start to use the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust Facebook page well. Our blog will remain open for a month while the transition takes place. We hope that you enjoy establishing the community on there well ahead of next year’s nesting season.

    I’m sorry to hear this – as I have no intention of signing up with Facebook I’m assuming that I will have no access to the blog in future. I shall, however, continue to enjoy watching the falcons.

      I am also sorry that the blog will no longer be available via NTU as have not joined Facebook and don’t intend to either. However, many Facebook pages are available to non-members to read so perhaps the falcon one will be. I shall continue to look at the webcam and would like to thank all at NTU for your hard work and the ensuing pleasure you have given in enabling us to view the falcon families from nesting to fledging. Let’s hope 2015 will be a successful year for our falcon family.

    Thanks for letting us know, but it is a shame. There’s still a place for blogs. Not everyone likes Facebook.

    I too will be sorry to see the blog come to an end but will follow on Facebook. My late husband enjoyed watching the falcon every day.
