Norwich's peregrine falcon chicks fledge!

High on a ledge at Norwich Cathedral a family of peregrine falcon chicks have been followed on livecam from eggs, to fluffy chicks and now to fledglings

"Fledging" seems too formal for the tumbling out of the nest it seems to involve (visit the Hawk and Owl Trust website for the funny videos)

The Hawk and Owl Trust announce:

We're running our 'Name The Chicks' competition this weekend! Get your suggestions to by midnight on Sunday! The lovely Ellie Harrison from Country File will pick the winning four names. Ellie helped us ring the chicks recently whilst filming the peregrines for a new series called 'Big British Wildlife Revival' which will be screened over the summer as part of the BBC 'Summer of Wildlife'. Winning names will be announced on Wednesday 12. Get naming! ;0)
