Hope for last Peregrine Falcon egg at Norwich Cathedral

This year’s breeding saw the arrival of three Peregrine Falcon eggs at Norwich Cathedral, attracting lots of attention from the public.

These birds are classed as endangered because of the use of pesticides during the 50s,60s and 70s

Many tuned in to watch the hatching of the eggs, as it seems like these birds are Norfolk celebrities.

Last week, two of the eggs hatched but sadly both chicks passed away on Wednesday.

There is still hope for the last egg that has not hatched, however experts are saying that it might be too late in the season.

The Hawk and Owl Trust are investigating the deaths of the baby chicks, and will keep everyone updated.
