Russells exploits @ Staughton Vale near Geelong, Victoria are interesting for 
watchers of raptors.

For the first time in 21 years the site has had one young Peregrine this last 
season.  It was thought 
that the female of the pair only produced infertile eggs but this has now 
proven to be untrue.

Possibilties for this turnaround are the previous wet spring which has reduced 
disturbance at the site, 
allowing the pair to complete a nest cycle.
