The spotlight is once again on our high-flying feathered friends who have made the Cathedral spire their home.

The Hawk and Owl Trust is back with its special watchpoint, giving visitors the chance to follow the story of our resident peregrine falcons and their chicks.

Free telescopes and binoculars are available for people view the birds, and Hawk and Owl Trust volunteers are on hand to tell you more about them.

People can also keep up to date with the peregrines while enjoying a cup of coffee in the Refectory thanks to a live video stream from the nesting box.

The birds of prey have developed quite a following in recent years and more than 30,000 people are expected to visit the watchpoint over the next couple of months to see the latest arrivals.

The watchpoint will be in the Lower Close from Saturday 6 April until Sunday 14 July.
It is open every day from 10am until 4pm.
