A pair of peregrine falcons have set up home at Greenwich's landmark clocktower - but snap-happy birdspotters are being urged to keep away.
The rare birds - which are granted special legal protection - have been spied by several eager onlookers at the Royal Hill site in recent months.
And nest site monitor John Chapman from the London Peregrine Protection Partnership - a voluntary group set up top preserve the capital's creatures - confirmed they had been there since last year.
He told News Shopper: "They were there last year but they were only young birds. But they stayed there right through the winter and they're still there this year."
