THE first of the chicks hatched by Chichester’s famous peregrine pair has fledged.

The male chick, named Black 54, spread its wings and flew for the first time on Wednesday, June 6.

And photographer Luke Dray was there to capture the magic moment as it perched on the edge of the cathedral parapet - then flew.
