So, from the date of the first egg being laid on 19 March through to the last chick fledging on 10th June, it has been an amazing three months of viewing on our Norwich Peregrines Webcam. The first two chicks fledged individually on the morning of 9th June, managing to find each other again, being seen merrily hoping around on the castellations at the top of the tower. Photos are provided by the amazing photographer Andy Thompson. Thanks Andy.

And then the following morning of 10 June, it finally happened!! The third and final‬ chick fledged at 7:40am, landing on the same crocket that the first chick used, thus leaving their well used home now sadly empty for another year. Following its pinpoint landing it then flew off across the Norwich skies to catch up with its siblings.
