Stump Peregrines on show

Peregrines are nesting at the top of the Stump tower. And you can see how they are doing thanks to a screen in the coffee shop streaming live footage of the birds.

Coffee shop opening times are 10am to 3.30pm, Monday to Saturday.

A nest tray was installed on the top walkway of St Botolph's Church in November, 2011, by local peregrine experts Bob Sheppard and Alan Ball.

The birds nested for the first time in 2013 and in 2014 they raised four chicks. The pair then left the church for the next three years and nested on the Frontier Building at the nearby Boston Docks.

This year they have returned to the Church and have laid in the nest tray. The eggs should hatch around the end of the first week of May.
