"The Peregrines of Derby Cathedral" is a great little DVD, now available for purchase for just £6 plus P & P.

It tells the story of Derby's peregrine falcons and features Chris Packham, well-known as both a BBC TV presenter and as a vice-president of The Wildlife Trusts.

All profits from its sale go directly to support our webcams and other project costs. All the Peregrine Project Team appear on the film, as does national prey expert, Ed Drewitt, from Bristol.

The DVD lasts 35 minutes and includes a large number of webcam video highlights taken over the course of the breeding season. Each video clip also comes with  a commentary, so can be great for schools to watch and listen to in class.

To pay by debit /credit card and have one posted direct to your home at no extra cost (if you live in the UK), please phone the Trust on 01773 881188 (Mon-Fri 9am - 4.30pm).

You can watch a short DVD promo, read testimonials below, or see more of the work of artist Steven McLoughlin which is included in the video.

The Peregrines of Derby Cathedral is an independent production by Delta Echo Media who have kindly given us all the rights to help us raise as much funds as possible for the peregrine project.

The DVD makes a superb present for anyone interested in birds, let alone for all those who have ever logged on to our web cams or visited Derby Cathedral to see these magnificent birds for themselves.

    I'm aka Sue H, Bucks, and I'm almost overcome with the heady thrill of sharing a write up with the Chief Exec of DWT and Chris Packham (not forgetting Pam, Veronica, Anonymous and Karen Anne) Add my hero, David Attenborough, and I'll think I've died and gone to heaven. I just looked at my DVD again the other day, and it's as fresh as a daisy and packed with great information about peregrine falcons. If you're on this website and haven't got the DVD yet, what are thinking of? Order one immediately, you won't be disappointed. If you already have one, buy one for David Attenborough!

    Thanks for letting us know, Del. In the New Year we'll arrange for a new batch to be produced and stocked by Derbyshire Wildlife Trust. I'm sorry about the inconvenience.
    (Had I known you wanted a copy I could have handed you one directly before you finished your employment with us up in Darley Dale last week. I think I may still have a couple of copies of the DVD at home should you wish me to send you one direct.)
