For the first time in 61 years, Sal­is­bury Cathe­dral has pere­grine chicks. Pip, Peter and Paula hatched on Sun­day 18 May. Staff col­lab­o­rated with RSPB in the past years to en­tice pere­grines to nest by pro­vid­ing a nest­ing box and pri­vacy. Clerk of Works Gary Price said: “Mother and chicks are do­ing well and were to­day vis­ited by the RSPB who checked that the chicks are all healthy and that Mum’s feed­ing them OK.” Staff set up a cam­era fo­cussed on the nest­ing box. Vis­i­tors on tours can see the nest. RSPB will set up a gazebo with a te­le­scope for vis­i­tors to watch the birds. The Cathe­dral will post up­dates at sal­is­burycathe­dral.org.uk/news/clerk-works-blog-pere­grine-up­date.
