Norwich Cathedral Peregrine Project – The 2016 Season Round Up

Here is the complete round up of the 2016 Norwich Cathedral Peregrines season, produced by the Hawk and Owl Trust.  The season started all the way back in February and ran up until June, but we have condensed it for you into just 10 minutes. There has been so much to cram in this year, ranging from the successful start to the season, the arrival of GA, the rise of ‘Super Dad’ and the drama of the fledglings that were to follow, I don’t think we could have made it any shorter. With captions explaining the scenes throughout, we hope you enjoy it. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of our supporters and followers this year, thank you.

 

Also working with Mustard TV, we have produced this update together to give a full explanation of what happened with our remaining chicks which survived at Norwich Cathedral and were taken into rehabilitation care at the International Birds of Prey Centre.  The link below will take you to the Mustard TV website where you will be able to view the video in full.  Updates on chicks YY and 41’s progress will be posted on our website as we receive them.  Many thanks
