Non Intervention Policy Statement
The Norwich Cathedral peregrines are wild birds and it is the Hawk and Owl Trust’s policy that we will not intervene with chicks or adults whilst they are on the platform. Wild peregrines lay an average of 4 eggs but on occasion not all of the chicks survive. Factors such as adverse weather, sickness, inexperienced parents and lack of food can all lead to one or more of the chicks failing to survive. The chicks will have leg rings put on by a ringer with a licence to visit the platform to ring the chicks before they fledge. Peregrines are protected from disturbance by law whilst nesting.

Partnership with Norwich Cathedral
In a partnership between the Hawk and Owl Trust and Norwich Cathedral, and with the help of volunteers from Norwich fire-fighters during their time off, the Hawk and Owl Trust installed the platform in February 2011 after a pair of peregrines was observed around the city.

If you have enjoyed watching the peregrines and would like to help us continue conservation work for birds of prey and their habitats please make a donation
