Peregrine over Johnson Matthey Chilton site (old ICI site off Belasis Avenue) at 13:30 today, being chased SW by a herring gull.

As an aside, I've been getting regular garden visits from a pair of GS woodpeckers, and i'm curious about the extent of their territory.  I'm in a side street SW of Ropner Park; how many other people in the area are seeing the birds?
