The fourth and final peregrine chick has hatched at Norwich Cathedral.
The first signs of hatching began early on Thursday morning and three of the chicks had emerged from their shells by yesterday.
And overnight, the fourth egg in the clutch had hatched.
Since the platform on the cathedral's spire was set up by the Hawk and Owl Trust in 2011, an average of four chicks have been born each year, with a 50pc survival rate.
The Hawl And Owl Trust, on its Facebook site, posted 'It's official, all 4 chicks have now arrived at Norwich Cathedral with the successful hatching of the fourth egg overnight Friday into Saturday (Exact timings are to be confirmed). 'Let's wish them a successful season whilst we observe their progress every step of the way.'
