Nesting box for the Peregrines

Nesting box for the Peregrines

posted in: News | 0

The Cathedral now has the nesting box for peregrines installed on the South West side of the West Tower.

The idea came from PCSO Jonathan Hall of Ely Police Station an keen bird watcher and nature lover.

After meeting with Viki Rowlinson the Clerk of works it was decided to install it in the section known as the Norman Gutters (the top of the Norman Tower, before it was extended to how it is today in the 1300s).

He and his brother spent Saturday 13th Feb, ferrying the parts of the box up the west tower to the section three quarters of the way up the tower an epic job!

It will take time before it is inhabited, but we hope that the peregrines nesting in Cambridge offspring will find us and move in!
