Four rare peregrine falcon chicks raised by a pair of the birds nesting on the top of a Sutton office block have taken to the skies.
But the young chicks' first flights have not been without drama with one of the babies surving a scare.
Peregrine pair Perry and Gwynn have nested on top of Quadrant House near Sutton train station for several years and have reared a number of chicks - despite the attentions of a predatory kite, a rare bird in Sutton.
Last year the pair failed to nest but this year they have managed to raise four healthy chicks.
The young birds of prey have been due to fledge - when their wings and feathers become strong enough for them to take their first flights - over the last week and a team of volunteers have been on hand to watch them and make sure they do not end up coming to harm.
