MERLIN. A speedy small falcon, similar in shape to the peregrine but only two thirds the size. Mainly breeds in the uplands of Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and northern England, although small numbers also nest in the SW of England.In general Merlins are ground nesting birds; however, they will use the abandoned nests of other birds of prey. Even though the population is rising slowly the Merlin still remains a rare and elusive bird.
