As ever, the falcon cam has proved to be compelling viewing for adults and children across Nottinghamshire and beyond. The Peregrine family have caught the imagination of many people, so much so that we have two lovely stories that we would like to share with you.
Firstly, we received a wonderful package through the post from the children in the Foundation Stage Class (4 & 5 years old) at Lady Bay Primary School, West Bridgford, taught by Miss Chilton.
Inside was an amazing 28 pictures of the falcons along with some lovely letters telling us how much the children have enjoyed watching the chicks grow up and cuddling in their nest-box. The children tune into the camera every day and have even got their parents watching at home!
The pictures are now decorating the walls of Falcon HQ and we thought we would share a couple of them on the blog.
Our second story is all about some fantastic fundraising carried out by Naomi Yeomans, Vanessa Sabin and their team of happy helpers from Capital One.
The team put on a cake sale, raffle and tombola raising a total of £210 which is being donated to Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust and NTU’s falcon research projects.
We would like to thank both the children of Lady Bay Primary School and the lovely folks at Capital One for the time and effort they have put in to show their support for the falcons. Hopefully you will inspire our other Falcon cam viewers to get creative and share their love for these magnificent birds!
