Peregrine Falcons have a new nesting platform on the side of the county council tower in Aylesbury.

The fastest members of the animal kingdom, with a 200mph swoop, are expected to breed in the undisturbed location over the winter.

On the old platform earlier this year, two young falcons were successfully reared.

Chairman of Bucks Bird Club John Gearing said: “The best place to view the birds from is the cinema car park with a telescope.”
