THE FIRST two eggs laid by the Chichester peregrines have hatched.

The pair moved onto the top of Chichester Cathedral in March, after several birds were spotted around the cathedral from the end of February.

Late on Saturday night (May 9), the first egg hatched and was followed by a second egg early the next day.

RSPB volunteers are eagerly waiting for the next two eggs to hatch.

The latest goings on in the nest have been covered by the Chichester peregrines Facebook page run by the RSPB.
