Peregrine Falcons' Live Stream

We are delighted that peregrine falcons make our tower their home in their breeding season - there were 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 organochloride pesticides (like DDT).

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. Fancy playing detective - try our 'Where's Sally' chat bot!

Don't be alarmed if you can't see the peregrines on the nest - they are out exploring the rest of the balcony.
