This is a live video link tp Peregrine's that have nested on the clock tower of Rochdale Town Hall every year since 2008

"Peregrine falcons have been nesting outside the clock tower at Rochdale Town Hall since 2008. The birds have attracted considerable public interest and they're regularly seen soaring above Rochdale town centre hunting for food. We built a nesting area for the birds in 2008 to help 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. "

Thanks for reminding me of these. I live in the next town and used to work in Rochdale. A few years ago I went to the town hall after work to watch them...and didn't see a thing. ?
Webcams are better!

We stay at Lane End Farm when we are back in the area, I taught at Siddal Moor in the 70's for a short time.

Rochdale.......the Venice of the North:).......we've got a canal, a Medieval bridge and a newly uncovered section of the River Roch and being serious now if someone had vision and completely pedestrianised the centre it has a superb open space suitable for bars, events etc.......unlikely in Rochdale I know!

I store my MH at the first farm and live near Morrisons. Didn't go to Siddal though as I was 25 when I moved here.

Unfortunately Rochdale isn't the best of towns but they are trying to improve things, however the Town Hall is a beautiful building and there's plenty of lovely countryside within flying distance!?

We were in Cromer a few weeks back and the church in the town centre has nesting peregrine's nest. They also have a camera set up so you can watch.
