Falcon cam returns to Nottingham
NATURE-LOVERS are to be given a chance to see a pair of peregrine falcons grow up - for the second year running.
Following the trials and tribulations of Nottingham City Centre’s resident pair of peregrine falcons last year, the organisers of a webcam project are setting up their cameras again . A pair of peregrine falcons, a protected species, has been nesting successfully high on Nottingham Trent University’s Newton Building for over a decade, raising a number of chicks each year.
However, changeable weather including heavy rains, low temperatures and high winds, resulted in the pair losing three of their four chicks last year.
Hundreds of thousands of viewers around the globe logged on to watch the drama unfold as the only remaining chick battled for survival in harsh conditions. But after its mother provided much needed shelter until the weather receded, the chick, later named Storm by webcam viewers, survived and flew the nest.

Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, which works with the University to protect the birds, believes that the warm spell of weather earlier in the year turned out to be the birds’ downfall and is hoping that the cold spell of weather well into February and March this year will give the birds a better chance of survival, as long as the weather warms up soon.
