A LAST chance to see a pair of peregrines and their two young is being offered in the Yorkshire Dales.

For another week people will be able to see a pair of peregrine falcons at Malham Cove, by visiting a free public viewpoint at the base of the cove provided by the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority and the RSPB.

The viewpoint is open from 10.30am until 4.30pm every day except Tuesday and Wednesday until July 30.

RSPB and Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority staff and volunteers will be on hand to show people the birds through telescopes.

Anthony Hills, RSPB Area Manager, said: “This year’s chicks are still mastering their hunting skills, with their parents teaching them what to do, so there is plenty of action to see.

"These famously fast falcons have been delighting visitors with their impressive aerial antics.

"We hope lots more people will visit Malham Cove to see these popular birds in action before the end of July, when the viewpoint closes for another season.”

The viewpoint is part of the Malham Peregrine Project, a partnership between the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority and the RSPB, now in its 16th year.
