WATCH: Live footage of Peregrine Falcons nesting on Town Hall

Leamington Editorial 17th Mar, 2017   0

BIRDS of prey are nesting in Leamington’s Town Hall – and you can watch them live.

Warwick District Council and Warwickshire Wildlife Trust installed a nesting box in the top of the tower, and peregrine falcons have taken up residence there.

The rare birds – there around 3,000 in the UK – can be seen on a live feed sitting in the box and coming and going from the hall.

The falcons have long pointed wings and a short tail with a black ‘moustache’ which contrasts with their white faces and spotted breast.




A spokeswoman from the council said: “We have placed a nesting box at the top of the tower of Leamington Town Hall. We now have a live feed of peregrine falcons nesting on the Town Hall.”
