Walked to crag with intention to climb however Peregrine falcones visibly nesting on crags so decided to head back to car. Wouldn't recommend a visit until after the breading season.

Four peregrines (parents & two chicks?) seen last weekend, one seen this weekend. Nest well and truly empty.

Two Peregrine Falcons must be rearing chicks there still (June 17th) and were aggressive towards climbers approaching the upper crag area.
