Woking peregrine project

Only 50 years ago, peregrines came close to extinction in the British Isles. Not surprisingly, they are now given the highest possible legal protection under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981.

Traditionally found on sea cliffs and upland crags, peregrine falcons are increasingly spotted in towns and cities on urban high rise buildings across the UK. 

Peregrines have been regularly seen in Woking town centre since 2001. In recent years a new pair of peregrines started nesting at Export House where a nest box, fitted with an internal web cam, was installed in January 2016. 

You can watch the nest box live each spring on the project website.
