Norwich Cathedral Peregrines – Chick 43’s Post Mortem Results

Following what has been an eventful season for the Peregrines at Norwich Cathedral, we now have available to publish the results from the death of Chick 43, the first chick that sadly died on Thursday 9 June.

She was found in the grounds of the Bishops Garden around 5.00pm on that day, following fledging from the nesting platform at 6.44am.

The post mortem took place at The Grove Vet Group in Fakenham, with the test results provided by Finn Pathologists.

Also in answer to many questions (with information provided by The Grove Veterinary Group) please review this statement The laceration involving the right upper eyelid was combined with marked bruising on the other side of the skull consistent with a ‘sharp’ hold on this individuals skull.  There was no skull or neck fracture and no brain injury. The head injuries alone were insufficient to cause death.”
