IMPORTANT NOTICE: We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with our Hawk and Owl Trust website, including the Urban Peregrines site and our Discussion Forums. Due to the high number of people visiting our websites at this time, if you are seeing the message “Internal Service Error” in your browser, we at the Trust are aware this is causing a problem and are working on resolving the issue asap. We apologise for any inconvenience caused!
Our webcam teams (technical sponsors and volunteers) have consolidated the service for 2016 following the improvements introduced last season.
The High Quality, Widescreen Cameras with Sound installed at Norwich Cathedral Spire will continue to provide our best ever quality streams to viewers around the world. Our technical partners, iCode, provide a single hybrid video stream that plays on all platforms, from desktops and laptops (Apple & Windows), to iPads, tablets, android smartphones and iPhones.
The St Johns Church, Bath webcam provides a single hybrid stream serving all viewing devices, unfortunately without sound. When funds allow we hope to upgrade the Bath webcams to the same HQ Widescreen specification as those used in Norwich.
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 from all over the world. We also 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.
Can You Help?
If you have enjoyed watching the Norwich peregrines, any donation – no matter how small – will help us to continue to bring this urban peregrine adventure to yours and many thousands of other screens and continue the essential work that we do.

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
