THESE young peregrines were captured on camera soaring through the skies of Chichester.

At two months old they are gradually beginning to seek their own way in the world, away from their nest on top of Chichester Cathedral.

The public have been able to watch them from the moment they hatched using a webcam which transmits footage live over the internet.

Samantha Stokes, from the RSPB, said: ‘All four have fledged now and they are spending their time trying to improve their flying and following their parents, learning to hunt.

‘They’ve probably got another couple of weeks left hanging around the area before they go off on their own and find new territory for the winter.’
