The story of Norwich Cathedral's peregrine falcons has taken an unusual turn.
Footage from the nest cameras has shown signs of courtship between the resident male and a new female - just a week after she attacked and killed two of his four chicks in the nest.
The Hawk and Owl Trust posted on Facebook: 'Just when you thought it was all over for this years (sic) season at Norwich Cathedral, we are now seeing clear signs of courtship behaviour between the male and the new female (GA).
'Our camera on Norwich Cathedral will remain running on our website so we can all observe this together. Further updates on their behaviour will be posted as we see them.'
The trust also posted a photo of the two surviving chicks, which had to be rescued from the nest from the attacking female, known as GA.
