  A pair of peregrines have been resident on the ramparts of York Minster for many years now and I have painted the pair and photographed them too. In 2016 the pair laid eggs, but they didn’t hatch out. But this year, 2017, I was delighted to learn on the @yorkperegrines twitter feed that 2 chicks have hatched. But on Monday I received a phone call from wildlife rehabilitator Jean Thorpe. “We’ve need to go and […]
