Nuremberg: Three peregrine falcons hatched in the dome of the DFS Tower

Nuremberg Airport can look forward to special "flying offspring", because the falcons that have been "stationed" at the DFS Tower for several years have had offspring again at the end of April 2022. There are three young birds, two male (Terzel) and one female. Chicks had already hatched in the last two years. Now the young peregrine falcons were ringed.

The ringing of the young peregrine falcon nesting in the dome of the tower was carried out by an employee of the Radolfzell ornithological station under the supervision of the airport's own environmental department. In order to get to the nest at a dizzying height, the airport fire brigade was also called upon to extend its turntable ladder to 48 meters and position it on the tower.

The predators are very welcome in the airport environment because they hunt species relevant to bird strikes, i.e. bird species that could come too close to aircraft taking off and landing.
