People often ask what the peregrines get up to at night, if they sleep through or not. Well, I just had a look at the webcam (you can too – it’s available 24 hours via our home-page). It’s very windy up there, feathers from plucked meals blowing around. Mum was having a bit of a scratch and looking around, very alert, then one of the chicks changed position, bumping her in the process. She’s now trying to sleep with her head buried in her feathers. Like many other mums, she doesn’t seem to be having a very restful night.

Tonight the chicks were ringed. We have 2 girls 47 & 45 and 2 boys 46 & 48. Pictures to follow and more pictures and video in the galleries
Last Thursday the peregrines had a visit from the Countryfile film crew and we are pleased to announce that we have had confirmation that a piece about our birds will be screened on Sunday 22nd May on BBC1 at 7.00 pm. Needless to say they performed to perfection with Dad posing for shots on the south side of the cathedral and then Mum fed the chicks on cue.Latest picture of our chicks – growing fast and now quite happily left alone in the nest
