BIRD WATCH: Live stream set up to watch rare falcons in St Albans

 Published on: 20th April 2023   |   By: Dean Shaw   |   Category: Uncategorized

A live stream of two rare peregrine falcons nesting at St Albans Cathedral has been launched.

The camera was installed after the birds, named Alban and Boudica following a public vote, arrived in the spring for breeding.

The species normally breed for life and stay loyal to their nest site.

The decision to set up the camera to live stream the birds was welcomed by many, including St Albans resident Sue Woodward.

She said: “It’s great that so many people can watch these birds as they make St Albans their home.

“I have two young children so it’s also very educational.”

Kevin Walton, canon chancellor of St Albans Cathedral, said: “It is a great excitement to be able to see, watch and hear these peregrine falcons making their home here.”
