The famous pair of Chichester Cathedral Peregrine Falcons have produced four eggs, and visitors to the Cathedral are now able to watch live footage and edited highlights from the nest as she incubates her eggs before their much anticipated hatching in late April.

The RSPB's project officer, Molly Dailide, said: "It's fantastic that peregrines are once again nesting on Chichester Cathedral, it is one of the most successful monitored nests in the UK.  We believe the female is on 4 eggs, the same as last year, the last of which was laid on 23 March.

Free entry.  All are welcome.
