A second egg has been laid by the Norwich Cathedral peregrine falcons in a flurry of activity in the nest over recent days.

On Friday night the live feed from the nesting box picked up the first egg arriving to the pair, as breeding season has been well underway for almost two months.

And this morning a second egg has been laid, with the Hawk and Owl Trust expecting a third imminently.

The team are also hard at work preparing for the Watchpoint to open to members of the public, with 70 volunteers manning the viewing area which accommodates 30,000 people each year.

This year the established pair of birds will also feature on a big screen at Norwich Castle, opening access to the falcons for even more visitors.

The Watchpoint will open to the public this Wednesday
