The nest box camera and a digital video recorder in the bell-ringers’ room were installed over two-days this week.

Last spring a pair of peregrines raised three young on the city’s landmark building.

Now we will be able to take a better look at them via the Wakefield Peregrines You Tube channel and @WfldPeregrines on Twitter.
