The Peregrine Falcons of St Marys Church
Thanks to the wonderful efforts of the Ashgrove Clinic, our neighbours on the Market Square, we now have a live feed of the nesting boxes at St Marys Church where we have our peregrine falcon families in residence. We are lucky that the peregrine falcons have returned to this location year after year to breed and now we have a fantastic insight into this process. Throughout the summer we'll be able to watch them courting, hatching and rearing a new generation of falcons.
As per the Ashgrove Clinic - During the camera installation process RSPB and Natural England were consulted to ensure that the law concerning protected birds was followed. No licences were needed, since the camera was installed "out of season" and the birds were not disturbed in any way.
