Live Norwich Cathedral Peregrine Web Cam 2013
We Need Your Help
Our Live Peregrine Web Cam Feed has proved more popular than ever with a large on-line audience watching the fortunes of our Norwich Cathedral Peregrines and their chicks. We stream it into schools to help children to learn the wonders of nature and to 100,000s 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. This in turns raises the profile of the magnificent bird helping to secure a safe future for it and other birds of prey.

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.
Background Information on The Urban Peregrine Project
In 2012 the first Norwich chicks in living memory fledged successfully here and began to learn to hunt around the cathedral close. In response to suggestions from the public, the young female was named Bobber and the male Grant.
The adult pair are expected to stay in Norwich, but at some stage before the 2013 breeding season it is expected, though not guaranteed, that the youngsters will leave the city to establish territories of their own.
Key dates from 2012: 1st egg laid March 22, 2nd egg March 24, 3rd egg March 27 and 4th egg March 30; One did not hatch.
Two eggs hatched on May 2, and both left the nest on June 12. One egg hatched on May 4 but the fledgling died on June 10 from unconfirmed causes. All three chicks were ringed on May 21 2012.
In a partnership between the Hawk and Owl Trust and Norwich Cathedral, and with the help of volunteers from Norwich firefighters 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.
