WE’RE EXPECTING! Falcon webcam at St Albans Cathedral catches first sight of eggs

 Published on: 9th April 2024   |   By: Panayiota Demosthenous   |   Category: Uncategorized

St Albans residents will be excited to hear that their feathery neighbours are once again preparing for parenthood.

In last month’s St Albans News, we reported on the return of the popular peregrine falcon webcam, which is set up on the roof of the cathedral to monitor a breeding pair of the birds.

This is the third year of breeding at the cathedral for parents Boudica and Alban.

Now, the cathedral is delighted to announce that three eggs have been spotted in the nesting tray, being carefully guarded by the now well-seasoned couple.

Heidi Mansell, engagement manager at Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust, said: “We’re delighted to see that the peregrine falcons have now laid three eggs on the nesting tray at St Albans Cathedral and that the birds are taking turns incubating them.

“Of course, being able to watch it all on the webcam makes it even more exciting and we’re hopeful that by the beginning of May, we might be tuning in to see some chicks!”
