Norwich Cathedral

An artificial nest tray has been successfully used at Norwich since 2011, and there have been birds using the nest tray ever since. The adults tend to remain on territory around the cathedral spire all year. The current resident female has a blue colour leg ring inscribes GA, this female was born on Bath st Johns in 2013 and successfully displaced the resident female at Norwich in 2016. 2017 was GA’s first breeding year. Volunteers from the Hawk and Owl Trust man a watchpoint at Norwich cathedral during the breeding season (March-June) its free to go along and have a look through the telescopes and view the Peregrines. There is also a live webcam that runs all year 24/7 to view the webcam go to; you can also follow the project on facebook  and twitter @PeregrineSkip
