Live Peregrine Webcam: Watch the Latest Action from the Nest

Our adult peregrines, Peter and Peggy, are back at the nest and we very much hope to welcome more peregrine chicks over the coming weeks.

Peregrine Chicks

After a gap of over 10 years, a mated pair of peregrines moved into the Cathedral Tower in 2022 and successfully nested, produced and fledged four chicks! They returned to the nest built by our Works Team again this year, and on Mothering Sunday, the female laid the first egg of the season. There were four eggs in total and on Wednesday 26 April, the first chick hatched, closely followed by a second, third and fourth. 
The exciting news in 2023 was that we were able to install a live hi-res camera, that operated 24 hours a day. 
Thousands of viewers enjoyed watching lots of milestones: hatching, feeding, ringing and fledging, with lots of activity in between.

Peregrine Drop-In Sessions

We enjoyed a series of drop-in sessions where our resident peregrine experts welcomed visitors to view the birds through a scope and shared their vast knowledge of this fascinating species  - the fastest living thing on earth! 

We very much hope to do the same again in 2024 - watch this space for updates!
