Sheffield’s Peregrine Project

Academic David Wood, Chair of the Sheffield Bird Study Group, tells the extraordinary story of the Peregrines of St George’s, the region’s only successful urban breeding pair of peregrine falcons.

In 2012, staff from the University set up a nest for the falcons at St George’s church. Four successful breeding seasons later, the city has taken these incredible birds to its heart. And millions of people from all over the world follow their progress via webcam.
