A juvenile peregrine
at Lincoln Cathedral
Lincoln Cathedral's peregrines
Two juveniles fledged on 13 June 2018 and can often be seen perched on the main tower of Lincoln Cathedral. The adult birds are resident and they too are often seen perched on the main tower of the Cathedral.
The watchpoint has finished for this year. Please contact us if you would like to volunteer for the 2019 watchpoint. (see the 'About Us' page for contact details).
Postcards of one of Lincoln Cathedral juvenile peregrines, a female approximately 7 weeks old, are available from Lincoln Cathedral shop.
Due to the retirement of the existing bird food sales volunteers in May this year we are looking for someone to organise and sell birdfood at the monthly indoor meetings from September 2018. You will need to have a suitable vermin-free storage area and be able to transport bags of bird food to the meetings. You will also need to re-order stock from our supplier as and when required and weigh and bag the birdfood ready for sale. If you are interested in helping please contact any committee member. Contact details are on the 'About Us' page.
A volunteer is required to organise the volunteers rota for the 2019 heron watchpoint at Hartsholme Country Park. Please contact a committee member if you want to find out more about the role and what it entails. Contact details are on the 'About Us' page.

Free coach travel for children on Sunday coach outings
You can book one free coach seat for a child under the age of 16 for each adult seat you book and pay for in advance - any admission charges will still apply, only the coach travel is free. We realise that it can be expensive for families to visit nature reserves so we are making this offer to encourage more people to bring children with them and encourage them to take an interest in birds, wildlife and our wonderful natural heritage.
