Great news
I live near the Kent estuary Cumbria.
Perfect combination. Plenty of birds on the estuary for prey plus nearby cliffs on limestone scar or local quarries for Peregrines.
There are several pairs producing young.
Happy days!

There are probably 5 pairs within an estimated 5 mile radius of our village.
Happy days!
