It’s not just political animals that will stalk City Hall, birds of prey will be taking up roost

The RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) has announced details of peregrine falcons returning to Cardiff city centre for a fourth year.

The birds of prey will take up residency in Cardiff’s City Hall and the National Museum.

Visitors will be able to watch live footage from nest-cameras beamed to a screen inside the National Museum.

All the footage will also be available online via the museum’s website

Craig Leitch, the RSPB’s People Engagement Officer, said: “The iconic Cardiff skyline is a perfect setting within which to watch these magnificent birds in action.

“The adult birds have been very active around the clock tower in recent weeks, and the female is now sitting on the nest regularly, which hopefully means they have some eggs underneath to protect.”

The birds are here as part of the RSPB’s ‘Date With Nature‘ project.
