The Hawk and Owl Trust have visited Norwich Cathedral this month to clean and check the Peregrine box. We are happy to report that everything is ready for the 2021 peregrine season!

The existing side camera has been inspected and cleaned, and a new microphone has been installed. We hope this will now reduce the local radio station interference. Last year we received many comments on this- we can assure you that the Peregrines are not listening to the radio!


Pictured: One of our favourite side camera shots from 2020!

This year a new test camera has been installed in the rear of the box to offer a new wide-angled view of the birds and their behaviour. At present, it is still undergoing trials, and there are no plans at present to stream this live.

 

A recent video clip shows the tiercel (male) preparing a scrape for the new season. The falcon (female) was sitting above on the spire and you can hear her calling. We look forward to seeing what the new Norwich Peregrine season will bring!


Donations help keep our cameras live!

It costs £75-£100 per month to stream our live cams!

The Peregrine project faces financial pressure in these very uncertain times. All donations are gratefully received towards our streaming costs which cost in the region of £75 - £100 per month to provide this service. Please visit our donations page for more info -  https://cafdonate.cafonline.org/9471
