After surviving winter the spectacular peregrine falcons of Norwich Cathedral are getting ready to appear on the big screen as the breeding season enters its most exciting stage.
Conservations from the Hawk and Owl trust are finalising plans to set up a big screen at Norwich Castle where members of the public can keep an eye on all the latest developments from the peregrine's platform.
Jan Smith, of the Hawk and Owl Trust in Norfolk, said they are looking for extra volunteers to help out with the screen at the castle.
'We are hoping to have a big screen put up at Norwich Castle so that people can go there and watch the chicks hatching when the time comes,' she said. '
We are still putting that in place at the moment and are in need of extra volunteers to be at the castle when it is up and running.'
Since the platform was set up in 2011 an average of four chicks have been born each year from the nest and Mrs Smith said all the signs are looking good for another successful breeding season:
'There has been a lot of activity between the birds already but it will ultimately be up to the female when she wants to lay eggs.'
