Asterix was hatched in Victoria in 2017. He had a bumpy start to life and was transferred to Healesville Sanctuary after being rescued by a member of the public. They transferred him to us in 2019 and he has now become one of the stars of our shows. Asterix is a proficient free flier and loves to chase a a swung lure at high speed.
Tiercels can be amazing birds to see in flight as they are one third smaller than a female Peregrine and more agile in the air.
