Live feed of Peregrine Falcon nest in central Leamington
Leamington Spa Town Hall is home to a pair of peregrine falcons who use a nest box provided in partnership with Warwick District Council. These webcams are live 24/7 during the breeding season enabling you to see all the activity from laying to fledging.
WARNING: These webcams show live footage of wild peregrine falcons. Please understand that at times this may include disturbing images.
We would like to thank all our avid webcam viewers for their continued support.
We would like to thank 'Lockwoods' of Leamington Spa for sponsoring both of the webcams again this year

Peregrine Watch has been running since 2013 and gives the public a closer view of the stunning peregrine falcons living in our towns and cities.
In partnership with Warwick District Council and Focus Optics, Warwickshire Wildlife Trust hosts Peregrine Watch events providing information about our 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 prey, including pigeons.
The peregrine is the world’s fastest animal, reaching unbelievable speeds of up to 200 mph in a dive!
With the help of Focus Optics, who very generously lend us a couple of telescopes, we are able to provide visitors to our events the perfect view of these majestic raptors. To find out more about Peregrine Watch events, visit our events page.
We continue to expand the project by building nesting platforms and installing cameras in locations across our region. By adopting a peregine you can help us to achieve this, and receive your own peregrine story.
