A flash of grey and a puff of feathers - us peregrines just love showing you how quick we are.At 400 feet above the River Wye, witness the action first-hand as we raise our family on Symonds Yat Rock, where we've bred since 1982.When we're not around, there is still plenty to see - from goshawks and ravens floating on the thermals, deer grazing in the fields below, to nuthatches, bank voles and wood mice that feed right next to the viewpoint, so close you can almost touch them.To make sure you don't miss a thing, get yourself to the free viewpoint and find out all about the amazing wildlife of the Forest of Dean.
Friendly volunteers will be at the viewpoint daily between 10 am-4pm, weather permitting. Please note that we rely on our enthusiastic and dedicated team of volunteers to show visitors the amazing wildlife of Symonds Yat. Occasionally, due to circumstances outside our control, we will not be at the viewpoint at the times advertised.
