Next time you're out and about in Cardiff, take a look skywards.

We'll be high above your head, working hard to raise our family in the clocktower of the City Hall.

You see, for us peregrines, tall buildings are just like cliffs - perfect places to build nests and to spot food from.

Watch our spectacular high-speed hunts and see our chicks grow and develop via the nestcam.

It doesn't cost anything, just turn up and we'll provide all the entertainment!

Seen us and looking for more wildlife wonders in Cardiff? Then you should talk to RSPB Cymru on 02920 353010 and they can tell you about all the fabulous wildlife they’ll be showing off in the Cardiff area throughout the summer season.

When can you see us?

Find friendly staff and volunteers at City Hall Lawn every first and third weekend of the month, 10.00am - 4pm, where they'll be on hand to show you us peregrines. From there, they'll also be able to guide you to the National Museum Cardiff where you can watch live images from the nest.

If you're making a special visit to see us, do call ahead (details below) to ensure there is someone on site.

Meals are available at the Oriel Restaurant in the museum and a coffee shop is located in the main hall for drinks/cakes etc. There are toilets at the museum.
