Derby's Peregrines on DVD

Peregrine DVD front cover"The Peregrines of Derby Cathedral" is a great little DVD, now available for purchase for just £6.

It tells the story of Derby's peregrine falcons and features Chris Packham, well-known as both a BBC TV presenter and as a vice-president of The Wildlife Trusts.

All profits from its sale go directly to support our webcams and other project costs. All the Peregrine Project Team appear on the film, as does national prey expert, Ed Drewitt, from Bristol Museum.

The DVD lasts 35 minutes and includes a large number of webcam video highlights taken over the course of the breeding season. Each short video clip comes with  a commentary, so can be of great for schools to use in class.
