A bird’s eye view of a Not­ting­ham nest

The Guardian - - JOURNAL - June Perry

If Guardian read­ers wish to get up close to pere­grine fal­cons (Fly­ing high, 15 March) they need go no far­ther than their com­put­ers where, by typ­ing in “Not­ting­ham pere­grines cam” or some­thing sim­i­lar, they will be able to sit back and watch the com­ings and go­ings of the birds to their nest-box high on Not­ting­ham Trent Univer­sity in the very cen­tre of the city. I did that, en­tranced, a cou­ple of years ago as I watched the four chicks grow up and fly away.

The cam­eras are put in each year by Not­ting­ham Wildlife Trust and are prov­ing in­valu­able for spot­ting de­tails of be­hav­iour that can only be re­marked upon when the sub­ject is un­der scru­tiny round the clock by some­one, some­where. Not­ting­ham
