|Killer Birds Prey on London
- Falcons breed on our roof tops
CENTRAL LONDON has become a breeding ground for wild creatures genetically programmed to kill.
A pair of adult falcons and two chicks have been spotted on the roof of a building belonging to the University of Westminster. Mr and Mrs Talon are the first such breeding pair to ever have been recorded in central London.
Notorious among London's deprived rodent community for their liking for mouse, rat and vole meat, the falcons need regular infusions of live flesh to survive. Like all birds, the Peregrine Falcons are known to be close in evolutionary terms to dinosaurs.
It is not known if the falcons have attacked University of Westminster inmates, but it is thought birds of prey might not be able to detect signs of life in the comatose student body.
