Fallen peregrine falcon chick takes to the air again

A peregrine falcon chick thought to have fallen from its nest when it first tried to fly has been nursed back to health.

The bird was found at an industrial park in Coleshill, Warwickshire, near Birmingham, and cared for at The Falconry Centre in Hagley, Worcestershire - one of three the venue has been looking after this year.

The chick is thought to have come from a family nest on a pylon.

It has been released in the hope of a reunion with its parents.
