Lincoln's peregrines, 2017
The peregrine watchpoint has finished for this year. Three young birds fledged and they can still be seen with their parents flying or perched on the main tower of the Cathedral. They will probably disperse sometime in October to find territories of their own.
Peregrines nested for the first time on Lincoln Cathedral's main tower in 2007 when three young successfully fledged. Three young fledged again in 2008, 2014 and 2016, two in 2009, one in 2010 and four in 2011, 2013 & 2015. None of the eggs hatched in 2012.
Volunteers are needed to help at next year's watchpoint on Saturdays or Sundays in June or July. Please contact us if you would like to volunteer.(see the 'About Us' page for contact details).
Postcards of one of Lincoln Cathedral juvenile peregrines, a female approximately 7 weeks old, are available from Lincoln Cathedral shop.

Free coach travel for children on Sunday coach outings
You can book one free coach seat for a child under the age of 16 for each adult seat you book and pay for in advance - any admission charges will still apply, only the coach travel is free. We realise that it can be expensive for families to visit nature reserves so we are making this offer to encourage more people to bring children with them and encourage them to take an interest in birds, wildlife and our wonderful natural heritage.
