Where to see Peregrines in this area

They go where the food is. In the winter, try estuarys, Bowling Green Marsh is a good bet. In the summer they like the seabird colonies with all the nice tasty chicks - there's a good chance of seeing one on Lundy.

Look for peregrines above windward cliffs. Like many raptors, they'll hang on the wind while they scan for their prey. I was lucky enough to get this picture on a wind-facing cliff:
