Peregrine Watch

Juvenile peregrine falcon

Peregrine Watch has been running since 2013, giving the public a closer view of the stunning peregrine falcons living in our towns and cities.

In partnership with Warwick District Council & Focus Optics, Warwickshire Wildlife Trust hosts events giving information on our local urban peregrine falcons. Peregrines are extraordinarily adaptable; traditionally living on cliff faces but now increasingly seen in urban centres thanks to tall buildings and an abundance of pigeons.

With the help of Focus Optics, who very generously lend us a couple of telescopes, we are able to give visitors the perfect view of these majestic creatures, whose top speed is over 200mph. To find out when the next Peregrine Watch event is, visit our What's On page.

We continue to expand the project by building nesting platforms and installing cameras. By adopting a peregrine you can help us to achieve this, and get your own story of the peregrine that you've adopted. To adopt, visit our Adopt a Species page.

The webcams will soon be live so you can watch the 2019 nesting season.

Baydale Control SystemsWorking in partnership with the Warwick District Council we have placed a nesting box at the top of the tower of Leamington Town Hall. The web cams have been made possible by the technical support of Baydale Control Systems.

The live webcam feed below will cover all the action over the next few months. Please understand that at times this may include disturbing images.
