Welcome to the Urban Peregrine Projects

new_season_2015

Our webcam teams (technical sponsors and volunteers) having been working on an enhanced service for 2015 over the winter ‘off season’.

New High Quality, Widescreen Cameras with Sound have been installed at Norwich Cathedral Spire allowing us to provide our best ever quality webcam streams to viewers around the world. Our technical partners, iCode, have managed to establish a single hybrid video stream that plays on all platforms, from desktops and laptops (Apple & Windows), android smartphones and tablets & iPads and iPhones.

Update 05.02.15 – The St Johns Church, Bath webcam is available right from the start of this season. The webcam feed has just been updated to a single hybrid stream serving all viewing devices. When funds allow we hope to upgrade the Bath webcams to the same HQ Widescreen specification as those used in Norwich.

Simply click the Quick Linx icons to visit either our Bath or Norwich Webcam Feeds.

Our Live Peregrine Web Cam Feeds have proven more popular than ever with a large on-line audience watching the fortunes of our Norwich Cathedral and Bath St John’s Peregrines and their chicks. We stream it into many schools to help children to learn the wonders of these top predators and to millions of people across the planet!

However … bandwidth is expensive and we need all the financial assistance we can to help offset expenses which are a drain on our funds.

Background

The Hawk and Owl Trust runs two Urban Peregrine Project sites: at Norwich Cathedral and St Johns RC Church, Bath.

“Urban wildlife plays a crucial role in enriching people’s lives: without it, many people would have no access to nature and all the benefits it brings”
‘State of Nature’ Report 2013

Both projects have captivated the imagination of the local population as well as web site visitors to the Trust’s live and still capture webcams. The Peregrine pairs have featured in regional and nation media on-line, in print and on television.

Norwich cathedral has only been ‘discovered’ by peregrines in the last 4 or 5 years as they slowly started to re-colonise Norfolk after a breeding absence of over 100 years. Even then it took the installation of a nesting platform by the Hawk and Owl Trust to provide these wild birds with a suitably attractive place the use. The Bath Peregrines have been established for much longer.

Other inner city sites were ‘colonised’ sooner. Visit our ‘other projects’ pages to learn more | Click Here
