A bird’s eye view of Wakefield

A camera has been placed inside the peregrines’ nest box on Wakefield Cathedral.

The nest box camera and a digital video recorder in the bell-ringers’ room were installed over two-days this week.

Last spring a pair of peregrines raised three young on the city’s landmark building.

Now we will be able to take a better look at them via the Wakefield Peregrines You Tube channel and @WfldPeregrines on Twitter.

Here is a slide show of some of the images from the project.

Thanks to Francis Hickenbottom, of Wakefield Naturalists, and Julie Knowles for the images.
