Peregrine Falcons nesting at Leamington Town Hall

The Peregrine Falcon is large and powerful and one of Britain’s most impressive birds of prey. It has long, broad, pointed wings and a relatively short tail. It is blue-grey above, with a blackish top of the head and an obvious black ‘moustache’ that contrasts with its white face. Its breast is finely barred. It is swift and agile in flight, chasing prey.

Warwick District Council are working in partnership with Warwickshire Wildlife Trust and have placed a nesting box and webcam at the top of the tower of Leamington Town Hall.

The webcams are live so you can watch the Peregrine Falcons 2019 nesting season!
