This was the rural part of my adventure as I then found myself watching out for peregrine falcons at Derby Cathedral which is located in the heart of Derby city. I visited the Cathedral looking for peregrines last year and I saw a pair together however unfortunately I didn’t see the falcons this time but I will be returning in the next month or two as they have eggs in their nest and it would be great to see the fledgling young.
