Well it seems the popularity of our peregrine family knows no bounds – our falcon webcam has now passed the half a million views stage and continues to rise rapidly. This blog has also clocked up a massive 130,000 views and almost 1,300 comments have been posted.
Viewers of the webcam herald from 99 different countries (one more would be very welcome indeed!) while people from almost 70 countries have visited the blog. The figures for both the camera and the blog have been rising each month, with May unsurprisingly being a very busy month with people keen to know how our final chick was coping following the dreadful storms in which it sadly lost its three siblings.
New this year is a high definition camera which has provided even more detailed views of the birds’ activities. As well as providing higher-quality images, the moveable camera can give a 360 degree view and has a zoom function which has allowed the monitoring team to track the birds along the ledge of the building. It also has infrared sensors to ensure the best possible viewing round the clock.
Last year the falcon cam witnessed an impressive 260,000 views over the course of the project.
