Peregrines have successfully nested on the Parkinson Tower since 2018.  In that time, they have successfully hatched and raised seven chicks.  Check out the archives below to find out more.  More information about Peregrines can be found by clicking here

What’s new for 2020?

We have had a second camera installed at tray-level.  Hopefully, this will be good to go very soon – watch this space!

You can keep up to date with our peregrines by subscribing to our newsletter here and if you have any comments or questions, please email: sustainability@leeds.ac.uk

Want to get involved?

We are keen to develop our knowledge and understanding of our biodiversity and ensure that this is then fed into our management practices.  To do this, we have a variety of ways that people can get involved.  These include:

  • Monitoring and recording our campus wildlife, including birds, mammals, pollinators and bats;
  • Signing up to our annual BIG campus birdwatch;
  • Getting involved in the Sustainable Garden activities;
  • Helping us to record changes to the campus landscape, using our bespoke recording tool;
  • Keeping an eye on our Peregrines via our webcam in the spring.

If you’d like to get involved or find out more about any of the above activities, please send us a message on our online form here.
