Peregrine Chick Takes Flight

Further to our report on the hatching of three Peregrine Falcon Chicks on the roof of Winchester Catherdral, we are delighted to report that one of the three chicks has fledged and is now flying around the grounds.

On Monday 11th June, the juvenile female flew from the north transept to some trees and returned after a few minutes. She later flew over the cathedral towards the visitor centre. The other two chicks are yet to take the leap...

Thanks to Richard Jacobs for these beautiful photos.
