Norwich Cathedral’s peregrine falcon chicks have been named by the public.

After hundreds of suggestions, the male was named Grant and the female Bobber. The third chick, which did not survive, was named Valiant at the request of viewers who watched the chicks hatch.

The chicks are the first to fledge from the nesting platform installed by the Hawk and Owl Trust at the Cathedral in 2011.
