Peregrine falcons have adapted to make use of the buildings of humanity to construct their nests, preferring tall buildings.  Here are a number of sites in the UK with webcams following the progress of nesting  peregrine falcons:

  1. This is great.. we have a webcam on a pair of breeding Black eagles in the one botanical garden… such a rewarding watch…

    • I always like to check up on the peregrine falcons early in the morning and at night. This is a great use of technology to view wildlife in liberty rather than behind cages.

  2. I have two friends restricted heartily from their desires to be active in nature by their current treatment woes. These live cams have been their salvation.
