A third camera was installed on top of the tower in 2008.It is now possible to watch peregrines all year round at Derby, whether feeding and roosting on the tower, or raising young on the nest ledge from March through to June. The Peregrine Project is a joint partnership between Derby Cathedral, the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust and Derby Museum and Art Gallery.Further afield, there are many Nature Reserves owned and managed by Derbyshire Wildlife Trust. If you wish to support the Peregrine Project by making a donation, there are currently three options: Either: Ring Derbyshire Wildlife Trust in office hours on (0)1773 881188 to make a payment using your debit or credit card (please specify Peregrine Project) or send a cheque made out to ‘Derbyshire Wildlife Trust’ and send it to: East Mill, Bridgefoot, Belper, Derbyshire, DE56 1XH, clearly marking it ‘for the Peregrine Project’.

Please note that our specimen is very old and that museums today do not condone or encourage the taking of any bird for display. Funding or material support for the web cameras came from many sources: Many small donations at Peregrine Watches; other anonymous gifts; Derby City Council's Wild Derby, Development and Tourism, Highways Department and ICT units.

Other nearby birdwatching opportunities include the nearby River Derwent footpath, going either upstream to Darley Park or downstream past the Council House and on to Pride Park. The peregrine project partners have high hopes for developing these webcam services in the years ahead as additional resources or sponsorship permit.

Adult peregrines can be seen on most days around the tower at Derby's Cathedral Green, or perched high up on the blue lettering of nearby Jurys Inn Hotel.

Even outside the March-June breeding season they are often visible via one of our three webcams.

A pesticide called DDT - dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane was found to be the culprit.

It caused thinning of their eggshells which then cracked during incubation.

Please Note: we are aware of connection issues which have affected our live cameras in recent weeks.

These are being investigated as a matter of priority as other services are also being affected.

Only after was banned, and peregrines given legal protection, did their numbers slowly start to recover. In 2006 a young pair showed strong signs of wanting to breed on Derby Cathedral, but there were no suitable ledges.
