Really nice story about the appeal of webcams on/in nestboxes and the peregrines' legions of online fans in the North America, Europe & Australia. 
It is too long to post in its entirety here and it has some lovely photos, so you will have to click on the link  :)

This is from awhile ago but still ...

Peregrine falcon talons tangled in discarded face mask
BBC / 24 July 2020

A photographer has captured images of a peregrine falcon with its talons caught in a discarded face mask.  Steve Shipley, from Driffield, spotted the juvenile falcon on the Yorkshire coast.  He said it was very sad to see it struggling because someone had failed to dispose of a mask properly.



Mr Shipley is urging people to take more care and consider the risks posed to wildlife.  "It is a matter of people being a bit more responsible and disposing of the masks properly," he said. "They are there to protect us, and the least we can do is not put anything else in danger."



The photographer encountered the bird on Sunday and said it eventually managed to free itself. However, the mask would have prevented the bird being able to hunt and feed itself, and could have resulted in death, Mr Shipley said. "There are only about a 1,000 breeding pairs in this country, and to lose one in this way would be a big loss," he added.
An RSPB spokesperson said: "This is incredibly disappointing to see. We all have the responsibility to clear up after ourselves and we should make sure that we dispose of facemasks and all other types of litter, properly and responsibly. By not doing so it's a danger not only to people but as we see in this case our wildlife too."

Earlier this week, a gull was rescued in Chelmsford, Essex, after getting its legs trapped in the elastic of a disposable face mask.

The RSPCA said it feared there could be a rise in similar cases as a result of the introduction of new face covering rules in England and Wales.

A beloved male peregrine falcon has died in Manayunk, Philadelphia. He was banded, 10 years old, and nicknamed Manny. Sadly, one of his legs was severed, quite possibly by a drone.

Had the peregrines moved back to the Cathedral?  I know 5-6 years ago they were on a tower near the Eiffel Tower and that historically (pre-1900) they had nested on the Cathedral, but hadn't heard they'd made it back to the Cathedral ...  ???

That information was provided on the day of the fire by reliable sources in France, people who have studied peregrines for many years and have a great deal of knowledge about them.

They were doing restorations on the building. Sometimes they don't like all the disturbances, so maybe the falcons were not there.  :-\

Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris is on fire

Apart from being a national disaster for France, peregrines nest at the Cathedral. I can only hope that they were able to escape, and that there were no chicks in the nest.  :'(

Holy cats, was there not so long ago ... and a family member was literally just there a week ago!

That will be a huge loss, not just the Cathedral, but anything close by (and everything is cheek by jowl on the island).  You can see the Palais de Justice lit up (with lights not fire) in the background of one photo - and the Conciergerie is just next door and Sainte-Chapelle.  Really like Sainte-Chapelle.

Oh that is just so sad, going to have to revisit my Paris photos this evening!  :'(

This is a massive fire; the spire has already collapsed.
