A good question Pat!!

Where the Peregrines nest is prime Hooded Plover habitat but within at
least 2 to 3 kilometres either side of the Peregrine nesting sight there
isn't a Hooded Plover to be seen.!!
They're not silly!

At the base of the nesting ledge I have found mainly Silver Gull remains
with the exception of one Magpie carcass last year.

One fascinating observation last year was of a Peregrine flying past
almost at eye level carrying in it's talons a small yellow bird that I
could only presume was a Yellow Robin.
