Watch the peregrine falcons... from the comfort of your own home!

Birdwatchers in Louth can enjoy following the progress of the peregrine falcons on St James’ Church from the comfort of their own homes this year.

The Lincolnshire Bird Club has generously funded two infrared webcams, sited on the church tower, with logistical support from local company GRS Electrical Services. The UK’s leading designer of wildlife camera systems, Wildlife Windows, installed the system last month.

Video clips of the peregrines’ first visit to the nest tray, and regular updates, can be viewed on the Lincolnshire Bird Club’s website at www.lincsbirdclub.co.uk, while photographs and more information about the history of the peregrines can be studied at www.louthperegrines.org.uk.

St James’ Church has supported the project from the start, and the coffee shop TV screen, which shows real-time action, will be running again when the church reopens to visitors.

The Louth Leader would like to thanks Geoff Mullett for providing the image and details.
