This report presents results from the 24th field season of the project "Investigations of the Peregrine Falcon in South Greenland". Following analyses of data from the first 22 years, the primary objectives of the study since 2005 has shifted towards monitoring of a fixed sample of nesting sites where reproduction, timing of breeding and monitoring of loads and effects of contaminants are carried out annually. Twelve sites have been selected, and in 2006 they produced 3.4 young/ successful site and 2.3 young per occupied territory. A whole addled egg was collected along with fragments from hatched eggs collected in 8 nests, and moulted feathers from the adults collected at 4 nests. Among 8 nests, the first egg hatched between 25 June and 4 July (mean 28th June) - an early year (average 2 July for 1981-2006).
