Cann Quarry ~ Peregrines & Spotted Flycatchers

I collected one of this years Cann Quarry (Plymouth) Peregrines from a Plymouth vets this morning, I suspect the bird had collided with a wire fence close to the nest site and bruised one of its wings.

Can any one give me an idea of how long ago this brood may have fledged and left the nest and if they have remained in the vicinity of the nest site as I want to get the bird back to its parents as soon as possible.

Cancel the above request I have been able to obtain the info required.

Peregrine juvenile female

BIRD RELEASED BACK AT THE NEST SITE ON THE EVENING OF THE 23RD JUNE, TWO ADULTS AND THREE OTHER JUVENILES AT THE SITE, ALL ON THE WING AT TIMES.

While watching them a pair of Spotted Flycatchers dropped into the tree to the front of the viewing area.
