The Chichester Peregrines

Chichester Cathedral’s peregrine falcons are preparing for the forthcoming breeding season and have been sighted regularly from the Cathedral grounds.

Over the years, the peregrine falcons have delighted visitors with sightings from the Cathedral grounds from March until August.

The peregrine project is collaboratively run by Chichester Cathedral, the Sussex Ornithological Society (SOS), Carnyx and local wildlife enthusiasts David and Janet Shaw who have been observing the birds since 2001.

After receiving guidance from our peregrine experts, we regret to inform you that the egg in the nest is not viable. Because of this, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the remaining Open Days. This moment is a tough one for all of us, but we are already looking forward to the hope and promise of the 2025 season.
