As celebrations of the 500th anniversary of St James’ Church spire continue, the parish is also celebrating the birth of three Peregrine Falcon chicks, the first of which hatched on Friday.
Following a visit by classes from Kidgate Primary Academy, the first chick has been named Rapunzel and the second chick has been named Perry.
The Parish of Louth has named the third chick ‘Flash’.
The nest can be viewed on the closed circuit television that is in the Coffee Shop under the tower in St James’ Church.
The Coffee Shop is normally open from 10.30am until 3.30pm from Monday to Saturday.
The Rector of Louth, The Rev Nick Brown, said: “Whilst this has meant that visitors are not able to climb to the top of the tower, it is fantastic that we have our own birds of prey in residence.
“We hope that they will be with us for the next few weeks, until they are ready to fly the nest in early July.”
