Norwich Cathedral peregrines lay second egg

A breeding pair of peregrine falcons nesting on the spire of Norwich Cathedral have started to nurse their second egg of 2014 after it was laid at 00:07 GMT.

The pair have been nesting on the spire since 2011, but did not have a brood until 2012 - hatching the first peregrine falcon chicks in the city for more than 200 years.

The Hawk and Owl Trust, which is monitoring the birds, expects the pair to lay up to four eggs this season.
