This year will be the 10th anniversary of the Manchester Peregrines campaign.
These amazing birds, the fastest creatures on earth, have chosen to nest in City Centre Manchester for the last decade on a secret tower block location. Manchester City Council have been wholly supportive of the campaign since its inception however, due to council cuts and the challenging economic climate, the RSPB were concerned that this year the nesting box online coverage would not be possible. Handsfree Group have stepped into the breach to supply and install a state of the art camera to allow twitchers and generally interested viewers from around the world to watch the nesting site live online on the RSPB website.
“We are extremely excited to play our part in supporting this RSPB campaign. Peregrine falcons are incredible birds reaching speeds of 200mph right here in the heart of Manchester. That in itself is a thrilling thought. Our TECh branded camera products are the best available and we have the skilled staff to install equipment required with precision and specialist knowledge”
Chris Horrocks Head of Group Communications – Handsfree Group
