The latest from Lincoln
Getting the nest cam up for the Lincoln peregrines has been far from straight forward as we told you last week , but I'm pleased to announce that the nest cam is now live! You can now keep up with all the action from the nest even if you're not there. And even better - we can now confirm that...

Lights, camera, action in Lincoln
When the web connection went live at the Lincoln peregrines back in May, the team were really excited to see the peregrines were back and nesting on the south west corner of the cathedral tower.

Well, chick number 1 was quickly followed by chick number 2, who arrived a short while after. The second egg was only laid an hour after the first, so it's no big...

The hidden treasures in Aberdeen Harbour
The has been full of ospreys and peregrines over the last few weeks, but the Bank Holiday weekend sees the arrival of a very different kind of Date with Nature.
