One of the four eggs laid by peregrine falcons nesting on the spire of Norwich Cathedral has hatched.The Hawk and Owl Trust says the chick got its first feed from mum at 06:17 this morning. The trust says the chick looks fit and well.
The peregrines at Norwich Cathedral are back and have laid their first egg of the new breeding season. Last year the pair successfully bred two chicks.
You can watch them live here.
The first peregrine falcon chick has fledged from the nesting platform on Norwich Cathedral.
The chick slipped from the nest yesterday evening, but landed on a turret just below the nest. Staff at the Hawk and Owl Trust say the youngster is doing well.
The pair of Peregrine falcons nesting at Norwich Cathedral have laid a fourth egg. The birds of prey can be seen on a special webcam.
The peregrine falcon chicks on the spire of Norwich Cathedral have been fitted with identification rings.
Metal and plastic rings have been attached to the legs of the chicks by volunteers at the Hawk and Owl Trust and the North West Norfolk Ringing Group.
The volunteers say the rings are harmless and help to monitor the population and distribution of peregrines within the UK.
Each chick has a metal ring with its own unique identification number.
The female chick is already much bigger than her brothers and will be a third bigger than them once they are all fully grown.
A fourth egg did not hatch and has been removed from the platform - it will be sent for analysis.
The young peregrines will be taking their first flights in two to three weeks time.
