·         Peregrine Falcons Falco peregrinus will readily utilise tall man-made structures like electricity pylons or tall buildings either as nesting sites (if there are suitable platforms available – with a bit of imagination these could be incorporated as part of the structure by the manufacturers) or as lookout posts for hunting. The presence of Peregrines may be betrayed by feathers or bones scattered underneath one of these feeding-posts.  Feral Pigeons Columba livia domestica (domesticated Rock Doves) are often selected as prey so if a flock of these birds suddenly takes to the air it is always worth looking overhead as a raptor may be responsible for flushing them. In London where this species is becoming increasingly well-established Rose-ringed Parakeets Psittacula krameri are also being exploited as an easy source of food!
