Peregrines

Over the last five years, our feathered friends, nesting in the Cathedral tower have gathered quite a following.

A young pair of Peregrine Falcons first nested at Derby Cathedral in 2006 and a small wooden ledge was installed on the tower. In the following months three chicks were raised there. Those chicks fledged and left the city that summer and two more were raised in 2007. It was then that two web cams were installed, broadcasting the progress of the Peregrines through the day and night to hundreds of thousands of people from Derby to Timbuktu!

Click the link below to join the Peregrines and follow their progress through the 2014 nesting and breeding season on the web cam as well as via the official blog, diary and latest news section.
