Peregrine chicks hatch at Lincoln Cathedral

They are nesting in the bell tower

Three Peregrine chicks finally hatched and can be seen nesting on Lincoln Cathedral’s central bell tower.

The parents regularly swap nest sitting duties and change-over time is best for spotting the fluffy white chicks.

Lincoln’s Cathedral bell tower has been home to the birds of prey for around 13 years.

Live footage of the Peregrine Falcons and the babies is being broadcast on YouTube here.

Birdwatchers were previously out in force as two Peregrine Falcons nursed their young.

The live-streaming project is a collaboration between Lincoln Cathedral, Quickline Internet Solutions and the University of Lincoln School of Computer Science with support of the Lincoln RSPB.

Lincoln RSPB volunteers will be available on the grass near to the Lord Tennyson statue every weekend through June and July for anyone wanting more information.
