Norwich Cathedral Peregrines Activity Log 02/06/2019

Very exciting day at the watch point, especially for YS, the first peregrine chick to fledge today! We can confirm that she is ok, having glided slowly down after the wind took her whilst she was flapping her wings. GA has been keeping an eye on her as she peeked over the crenellations!
