Peregrine falcon in Denmark Webcam

Now you can watch Peregrine Falcon LIVE on webcam


The peregrine falcon couple at the Port of Aarhus can now be followed by everyone. After MANY hours and days of work, we finally succeeded in connecting the peregrine falcon box at the Port of Aarhus, Denmark to a Youtube film.


Find the page by writing vandrefalke.dk or peregrine falcon in denmark. Note the image becomes completely sharp after 5-7 sec. For full screen, tap square at the bottom right of the movie.


The male is ring and color marked in 2019 at the Port of Vejle. The female, which is significantly larger than the male, is not ring-marked and has a slightly yellowish colored head against the male's light head. The male has fewer breast and neck spots than the female.
The chicks hatch in the 1st week of May. It is and will be exciting to follow the couple.
I am happy to receive information about exciting observations made by the peregrine falcon couple - for example about prey. Jørgen Terp Laursen jtl@kirkeugle.dk, East Jutland Biological Society (ØBF).

Strong evidence suggests that both in 2015 and 2016 illegally removed a few days old falcon chicks from a nest on Moen, Eastern Denmark!!

Den danske ynglebestand af vandrefalk har været i markant fremgang efter det første ynglefund i nyere tid i 2002.


I 2013 ynglede vandrefalken med succes for første gang i ca. 70 år i Jylland, hvor et par ynglede i redekasse på Skærbækværket ved Kolding.

I ynglesæsonen 2016 har 13 par vandrefalke ynglet med succes i Danmark, mens flere andre par er ved at gøre klar til et familieliv. Det viser ny optælling fra Dansk Ornitologisk Forening


Overvågning skal forebygge tyveri af unge vandrefalke på Møn


"Stærke indicier peger i retning af, at der både i 2015 og 2016 ulovligt er fjernet få dage gamle falkeunger fra en rede på Møn. Nu vil overvågningen af de fredede rovfugle blive skærpet". Dansk Ornitologisk Forening aug.2016.

Østjysk Biologisk Forening har nu opsat vandrefalkekasse på Aarhus Havn, hvor et par ynglede i 2020.


Vi søger sponsorer til projektet!

Det vil blive det første webkamera opsat i yngletiden ved en vandrefalkekasse i Danmark.

Vi forventer meget stort besøg på siden, hvorfor det er et oplagt sted at reklamere for produkter, som fx. vedrører økologi og natur.


Kunne du tænke dig at sponsorere projektet med reklamer på denne side kontakt Jørgen Terp Laursen.
