Home to breeding peregrines since 2001, Chichester Cathedral hosts the RSPB's annual Date with Nature event, where live HD footage of the nest is beamed to a special viewing area in the Cathedral's Royal Chantry Garden (off of the Cloisters CafĂ©).  RSPB staff and volunteers will be on hand with binoculars and telescopes, to help you spot the birds and to answer your wildlife questions.

Last year, all four chicks successfully fledged from the tower, and this year the pair has laid a further four eggs.  These eggs are expected to hatch around the date that the event opens, on Friday 28th April 2017.  When the young are starting to learn to fly, the RSPB will move out onto the Cathedral Green.  Entry to the Cathedral is free and the Date with Nature event runs until Sunday 2nd July 2017.

Chichester Cathedral was the first site in Europe to host a peregrine webcam to provide an intimate view of peregrines raising their young.
