Peregrine Falcon's Live Stream

We are delighted that peregrine falcons make our tower their home in their breeding season - there have been records of them nesting here between 1864 and 1953, after which there was a long period of absence caused by persecution and the use of organophosphates.

 

In 2014 a mated pair nested, producing and fledging four chicks successfully in a nestbox built by the Works Yard team. Since then peregrines have hatched and fledged from the Tower every year except for 2018, when a territorial battle between two females prevented laying. 

 

Our resident peregrines are so popular they even have their own YouTube channel live stream and all our chicks are ringed so that we can follow their progress. One of our peregrines, Sally (an adult female), is fitted with a satellite tracker.

 

This year an unringed peregrine had four chicks. Don't be alarmed if you can't see all of them on the camera. As they've grown in size and confidence they have started to explore their surroundings.
