Fledglings should be left where they are, unless obviously injured. They appear clumsy on the ground. Removal is a last resort & should only be done by experts under licence. Any worries or if you see anything suspicious report to @sheffielduni Security Services 0114 2224085 (24 hr) who will contact the Sheffield Peregrines team.
Thank you to all those watching out for the peregrines. It is very important to stay vigilant. For advice or to raise any concerns, please do contact University of Sheffield Security Services on 0114 2224085 or firstname.lastname@example.org (24 hour)
With your help we can provide more opportunities for people to learn more about these amazing birds as well as carry out important research. You can support the Sheffield Peregrines Project by donating through our Virgin Money Giving page.

Since they first bred in 2012, the Peregrines of St George's have become an established feature of Sheffield's skyscape, enjoyed by many across the city and well beyond. Indeed, visitors to the webcam are now in the millions, while the Peregrines blog has had well over half a million visits, both attracting people from over 100 countries around the world.
The University of Sheffield has supported the project in various ways, notably via the nestbox and webcams, and particular thanks go to Ian Knowles, Paul Leman, Jim Lonsdale and Phil Riley.
The adult birds remain around the St George's area throughout the year, but are most evident from January through to the end of the breeding season. Visits to the webcam can be rewarding at any time, though the months of March-June are when the breeding activity takes place and views are more or less guaranteed.
