Nick Dixon has spent 25 years studying the fastest creature on the planet, the UK’s largest resident falcons and their occupation of the urban environment, following the breed’s near extinction in the 1960s and the subsequent recovery from toxic pesticides in the food chain.
Nick has monitored the Exeter peregrines on St Michael’s church since they first bred there in 1997. This fascinating talk includes the history and ecology of the peregrine falcon in the UK plus some amazing findings from his years of observing this majestic bird.

Doors and bar open at 7pm, talk starts at 7.30pm.
