Events and Peregrine Watches

On Thursday 5th June 2014 we held a free public talk on the 2014 story of the Peregrines at St George’s.  The talk took place in the church itself, and was preceded by a Peregrine watch outside, which coincided with the same day that the juvs took their first flights.  The talk consisted of contributions from Phil Riley, Jim Lonsdale and David Wood on different aspects of the project, and can now be viewed online.  

For those who want to know more about the Peregrines, and other species in the Sheffield area, the recently published SBSG Breeding Atlas contains details of how Peregrines have fared as a breeding species across our area in recent decades, and the 2012 SBSG annual report has an account of the first breeding success.  Both can be purchased via the SBSG website.


The first organised Peregrine watch will take place at St George’s later in the breeding season, though observers will often be at the church to keep an eye on progress if you do want to pop down to see the birds for yourself.

  1. Hi,
    Any chance that to have a recording of this talk afterwards? My parents are totally hooked to the webcam but live 1400 km too far away to attend.

      1. I only live in Totley but am really annoyed to have to miss the meeting due to a prior engagement. I’d love to be able to get a recording too, I presume you’ll tell us how in due course.
        Thanks again to all concerned for bringing such good quality pictures and interesting info. over the last 10 weeks. I shall really miss them when they finally go.
