Norwich Cathedral peregrine falcons: Feeding time for chicks

Three chicks have hatched on the peregrine falcon's nesting platform on the spire of Norwich Cathedral.

The first chick hatched on Saturday evening, with the second and third arriving on Sunday afternoon.

Dave Gittens, from the Hawk and Owl Trust, has been monitoring the nest 75m (246ft) above the ground since the first egg arrived in March.

He said the chicks "appear well" but were now "vulnerable" to predators.
