Peregrines arrive

Today the very first young Peregrines arrived to Västerås and our hacking cage on the top of the old water tower just outside town. We hope to lay the foundation for a new population of this stunning bird, that bred traditionally in the area til the 1950:ies. Two brothers and a sister was placed in the cage, at the age of 35 days, reared in captivity at Nordens Ark in the southwest of Sweden. Due to be realeased on wednesday next week. See more pictures and more about the project on our Peregrine facebook-group.
