In 2018, with a little help of a custom-made nesting platform, three peregrine chicks successfully fledged from the University’s Parkinson Tower. In March 2019, peregrines became interested in the nesting box again and as of late April, we have 4 hatched babies! These babies are due to fledge 29th May – 8th June, keep an eye on the live stream of our Peregrine-Cam above to see what they get up to!
On Wednesday 15th May, the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust will be coming to campus to ring the baby peregrines so the Peregrine-Cam will be turned off between the hours of 3 and 6pm, apologies for any inconveniences.
