A trio of peregrine chicks have hatched in the nest box on top of Wakefield Cathedral.

Francis Hickenbottom, of Wakefield Naturalists, has been monitoring the new arrivals via a web cam.

He said two birds hatched very late on Tuesday night and a third on Wednesday afternoon.

All eyes are now on a fourth egg.

The video, by Wakefield Naturalists, shows the newborn with their mother.

People can follow their progress on Wakefield Peregrines’ YouTube channel or via Twitter.
