We are delighted to launch our first ever peregrine cam! After their first breeding season last year, Alban and Boudica's two eggs hatched in the morning on 11 May with the final egg hatching in the late afternoon. Watch as they grow over the next couple of months.

Watch the live action!

Thank you to Leica for sponsoring our live cam.

Please note, peregrine falcons feed on other small birds, most commonly pigeons and parakeets in St Albans. This is completely natural, but there might be scenes which some people may find distressing.

We're delighted to launch our first ever St Albans Peregrine Art Competition this year, to celebrate our live cam, in conjunction with Leica Sport Optics and Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust.
