|At the moment this is not ROC or motor car related.
It is a link into the WebCam of the Peregrine falcons that are nesting outside the clock tower at Rochdale Town Hall since 2008. The birds have attracted considerable public interest and they're regularly seen soaring above
Rochdale town centre hunting for food. They a nesting area for the birds in 2008 to help provide them with a safe haven to sleep, breed and raise their young. As the tallest building in Rochdale town centre,
the town hall reflects the peregrine's natural habitat to breed and hunt prey.
At the moment she is sitting on 4 eggs. When the chicks are born they have a falcon chick naming competition. As the ROC have a connection with Rochdale and the Olympic Games connection should the
ROC enter with a name like "Rochdale Olympic" or "Olympic" or any other name suggestions? for the members to vote on?
