Our Research Team
Over the years, the Peregrines at St Michael’s have drawn to them an extraordinary team of talented individuals who have greatly enhanced our knowledge of these birds and sought to preserve and protect them through their work.
Research carried out by Nick Dixon on the feeding and behaviour of these birds is now the longest running research project of its kind in the UK.
Nick Dixon also heads the Peregrine Project at St Michael’s, through whose dedication and perseverance, in what can only be described as, at times, one of the most inhospitable and inaccessible locations in Devon, we now have a webcam on our nest site.
Jason Fathers, of Wildlife Windows, installed the webcam by climbing the inside of the spire, over 200+feet up! The webcam shows live footage and is connected to the internet, which, in itself was no small miracle to install at the church and took almost a year in negotiations with the providers and the planning department of Exeter City Council.
