Live Feed goes Viral for College's Rooftop Peregrine Falcons

Live Feed goes Viral for College's Rooftop Peregrine Falcons 14 December, 2016



Our now famous Peregrine Falcons have been nesting in the vicinity of the College since at least 2012, and in 2014 they successfully raised a brood of five youngsters. Usually Peregrines have three or four young, so five is rather special. The Tiercel, or male Peregrine can be seen on the roof for most of the year. The Falcon (female) returns each year to breed. In 2016 she returned in October.


The College has a live feed of the Falcons. Follow KC_Falcon on Twitter for live motion detector updates. You can also scroll down to watch the live feeds on YouTube.


The eggs are usually laid in late March/early April and take between 30 and 33 days to incubate and the young fledge after about another 44 days. They are still dependant on the adults at this stage as they are taught how to hunt. The female is much larger than the male and the birds have a wingspan of about 120cm.
