Chicks ringed today

While the Cathedral bells tolled the 4 chicks of our peregrine family were ringed tonight.  After a hearty meal they were in for a surprise, when Graham Roberts and Phil turned up to cause mayhem for the adults and ring the chicks.  There was great excitment when we dicsovered there were 3 females and 1 male.  All are healthy and had full crops from their meal and were successfully ringed and replaced in the nest.  By the time we left around 9.30 all was quiet on the Cathedral spire. A very successful day. See picture below and in the May gallery and video on the link from the Home page.
