Satellite-tracked juvenile Peregrines
Birdlife Hungary (MME) deployed 4 (22g) solar Argos/GPS PTTs on juvenile Peregrines in Hungary. We have decided to track only females since they are larger thus they can carry the PTTs more easily.
3 out of 4 have already fledged - they are still around the nest. However, tagging was not wit ...
The most up-to date publication on the status and conservation of Peregrine Falcons at the turn of century. This book contains the largest collection of papers concerning the study and conservation of Peregrines in nearly whole Europe and other continents.
This book is based on papers presented at the 2nd International Peregrine Conference, held from 19-23 September 2007 in Piotrowo near Poznan, Poland.
Welcome at the webpage of the European Peregrine Falcon Working Group !
We are the organisation of specialists interested in the research and conservation of this wonderful bird.
The European Peregrine Falcon Working Group (EPFWG) was established at the 2nd International Peregrine Conference POLAND 2007 by its first decision . We are now working on the constitution and rules of the EFPWG. The Conference decided also on first research programmes which we will work on.

THE IDEA OF THE EUROPEAN PEREGRINE FALCON WORKING GROUP
Our aim is an exchange information and work together on research and conservation of Peregrine Falcon in Europe.
We plan to establish a platform of cooperation of the Peregrine specialists in Europe and worldwide.
The Peregrine Falcon Falco peregrinus is an icon of nature conservation.
The DDT pollution was recognised as a reason of sudden decrease of its populations worldwide. Some of the populations survived, some went extinct. Fortunately falconers in many countries started to breed the Peregrines and launched reintroduction projects.
Ban on DDT use, active and passive protection lead to improvement of Peregrine status worldwide, but its situation is not the same everywhere.
In few countries it’s populations are in a very good condition, even better than before DDT-crisis.
In many countries there are projects on its reintroduction and management of wild populations, some of them going on.
One of the most difficult tasks is to re-establish the tree-nesting population in central Europe.
The aims of the Working Group will be:
- project of coordination of ringing projects in Europe
- exchange platform of scientific knowledge on the species
- exchange platform on conservation of Peregrine populations and techniques used
- exchange platform of information on ringed birds
- international scientific projects
- cooperation in re-establishing tree-nesting population in Europe
- international expertise
