Peregrine falcons have nested outside the clock tower at Rochdale Town Hall since 2008. The birds have attracted considerable public interest and they are regularly seen soaring above Rochdale town centre hunting for food. A nesting area was built for the birds 9 years ago, helping to provide them a safe haven to sleep, breed and raise their young. As the tallest building in Rochdale town centre, the town hall reflects the peregrine's natural habitat to breed and hunt prey.
Our recent award winning Revealing the Roch project was praised for renaturalising the river and helping to bring wildlife back to the town centre.

See the birds progress throughout the nesting period as they raise their young at the top of Rochdale's most historic building.
The live webcam will not be available between 6pm-7pm tonight (Thursday 25 May) as the 4 chicks are ringed inside the town hall. Ringing will involve attaching a small numbered tag to the leg or wing of each of the chicks so they can be individually identified and tracked. This standard procedure will be carried out by experienced ringers who give utmost consideration to the birds' welfare.
