Watch baby Peregrine Falcons take flight

They were filmed egging each other on to take a leap of faith

Three baby Peregrine Falcons have spread their wings and started flying from Lincoln Cathedral.

As previously reported, they were just eggs being nursed by their parents in the bell tower.

Now, after egging each other on, the two females and one male have all taken a leap of faith for the first time.

A 24/7 live stream took enthusiasts and casual birdwatchers into the nest for the first time.

It was a collaboration project between the University of Lincoln, Lincoln Cathedral and Quickline Internet Solutions.

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