The first chick, colour-ringed 'YS' fledged early, after getting caught in a gust of wind a week agom, but she found a safe place on the cathedral and has been practicing her flying there whilst being provisioned by her parents.

Despite much wing exercising, and encouragement from the parents, the remaining two chicks have remained resolutely in the box until this morning at just gone 5am. 

The chicks will stay around the cathedral for at least several weeks, learning the flying skills they will need to hunt and feed throughout their lives. The WatchPoint will remain open for another 3 weeks and the chicks around the building give plenty of opportunities for good viewing.
