The couple of peregrine falcons nesting on top of the Palazzo Pirelli in Milan has arrived for the second year and successfully hatched and raised two new chicks. The pair, christened Giņ and Giulia by the Milanese citizens, has elected, as before, to nest on the roof of the Lombardy Regional Council's 125 m-high skyscraper, where the offspring's progress has been observed day by day and broadcast on the Council's website.

Peregrine falcons, which were in danger of extinction only a few years ago, are making a comeback, and many of them have become city dwellers. Several pairs nest regularly in London, choosing prestigious locations such as the Tate Modern, the Houses of Parliament and the Battersea Power Station.

City authorities welcome them as they eat other birds like pigeons, which play havoc with urban decor.
