A date with nature - peregrine falcons at Malham Cove, 2013
The peregrine falcon is one of the most impressive birds of prey in the country and we are very fortunate that they have nested at Malham Cove in the Yorkshire Dales National Park since 1993.
The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) and the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority (YDNPA) run a viewpoint so that you can see these wonderful birds along with many other birds that are characteristic of this upland area.
It's all part of the RSPB's 'A date with nature' project that gives people chance to get close to birds. So why not find out more by exploring these pages and make your date with nature?
The viewpoint is open, weather permitting, every Saturday to Wednesday (closed Thursday and Friday) from 30 March to 31 July 2013. On these days wardens will be present from 10.30am until 4.30pm.
Come and see us and the peregrines!
