A live webcam has been set-up to give people a close-up view of nesting peregrine falcons at Merton Civic Centre.

The falcons have returned to the rooftops at the 14-storey council offices in Morden for the fourth year running. Here, they will lay eggs and welcome new chicks, an exciting event that will be live streamed around the clock on the council website.

This year, the London Peregrine Partnership donated a nesting box to ensure that birds and their chicks are fully protected from the elements. It has bricks around the edge to assist the chick to get back in the nest box should they fall out.
Birdwatchers and residents will be able to watch key movements of the baby chicks and adult birds, which include the crucial fledging period, when the chicks grow strong enough to fly the nest.
The birds often lay three or fours eggs between late March and early April. The eggs then hatch about a month later. The chicks fledge at 38 to 44 days old.
