Norwich Cathedral falcons welcome first egg of the year

The Norwich Cathedral Peregrines have laid their first egg this year. The egg was laid at around 6.30am on Friday 15th March, which is nine days earlier than last year.

The peregrines usually lay a clutch of four eggs with a few days between each, so more eggs are expected to be laid in the coming days.

The falcons have fans all over the world, with more than a million views on the webcam set up at their nesting site on the Cathedral.

The Peregrine watchpoint will officially open on the 6th of April. Visitors will be able to have a look at the birds through a telescope at and learn more about them.
