Norwich Cathedral peregrine falcons lay second egg

A second egg has been laid by a pair of peregrine falcons nesting on the side of Norwich Cathedral spire.

The egg was laid at about 05:00 GMT as the bird's platform was buffeted by 80km/h (50mph) gusts in a wind chill of -6C (21F).

The specialist platform for the peregrine adults, set up by the Hawk and Owl Trust on the cathedral's spire in 2011, simulates a cliff face at 75m (246ft) high.
