The third and fourth eggs both hatched on Saturday morning, and had their first meal at 11.00, just an hour after the RSPB opened their public viewing area in the Cloisters Café at the Cathedral. All chicks are doing well.
Thanks to everyone who came to see our famous family on the opening day. The sun was shining, and there was a wonderful turnout – lots of people we’d met in previous years, as well as newcomers. All very welcome – it made for an exciting first day!
It only takes about 6 weeks for them to grow to full size, and start taking their first tentative flights, so if you want to see them while they’re still small and fluffy, come and visit us soon! Video footage of highlights will be available to view at the Cathedral throughout the season (finishing on Sunday 21st June).
