CHICHESTER’S famous peregrines have laid a third egg - and birdwatchers expect a fourth soon.

Posting on Facebook, the RSPB said on Monday, April 1, that the total of eggs had reached three but “hopefully number 4 to come soon”.

During Easter weeekend, the father of the pair had also been helping to keep the eggs warm by sitting on the nest.

After 13 years, the city’s famous peregrine falcons have shown Chichester is still the perfect home for their family.

From now until July, people will be able to see the chicks grow up thanks to a special nest cam being run by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB).

Check out the pair - and their clutch of eggs - here.
