There are records of Peregrine Falcons breeding at the Cathedral between 1864 and 1953, then there was a long period of absence. They finally returned in 2013 and have been hatching and fledging from the Tower every year since. Our residents are so popular they even have their own YouTube channel! All our chicks are ringed so we can follow their progress, and we have fitted Sally (an adult female) with a satellite tracker.
Peregrines past and present
This gallery tells the story of our peregrines in pictures, from ringing the first chicks in 2014.
