In the above video, Terry Pickford talks about his concern at the failure and abandonment in April 2016 of potentially the Forest of Bowland’s only occupied Peregrine Falcon territory. Terry highlights the possible cause be believes resulted in the desertion of the territory, the only occupied nest he was aware of in the Forest of Bowland in 2016. Terry believes the abandonment of the nest containing an unknown number of eggs was most likely the result of irresponsible human disturbance witnessed by a passing bird watcher on Thursday 21 April lasting 2 hours between 5pm and 7pm. Throughout this time frame the pair of Peregrines were observed flying and stooping in a distressed manner above the territory. Two days later Terry was made aware the nest and eggs had been abandoned.
