Just as I clicked onto the Falcons, the camera zoomed in to a close up, it doesn't happen very often so I couldn't resist this opportunity. Doesn't it look great close up.  

Knowing that the laying of a second egg  was imminent, I have been all agog with anticipation and my vigil has just paid off. Mrs Perigrine was showing all the signs of an egg about to be laid. At app

I have just had the pleasure of watching a change over on the nest at 8.14am, and pleased to say all looks well, I spotted all four eggs in tact. If I remember correctly the fourth egg was spotted ar

Great to see all 3 chicks fit and well and obviously growing at an alarming rate as parent bird cannot cover them now and looks ever so slightly uncomfortable. :jumping:

:biggrin:Wonderful news; so thrilled for Mr and Mrs PG. Have been checking but not reporting; things appeared static with Mrs PG constantly on the nest - she deserves a Medal. Hope to see a glimpse of the family soon. :biggrin:

Yep, three very wriggly chicks...it's definitely a struggle to keep them covered now, doing well on the feeding, plenty of pigeon provided for them. Maybe some humans should take note of their parenting skills!!! :laugh:

The chicks are starting to 'fledge' now. Loads of proper feathers on their way.

I have a look at them everyday, Beefsteak. They've also started to flap their wings and, like you say, their adult feathers are starting to show. I saw the parent bring a pigeon to the nest yesterday afternoon but the chicks weren't interested. The parent had a mouthful or two and flew off with the remains of the pigeon.

One of them is scaring me to death. It's looking over the nest side of the ledge as it flaps its wings and I'm hoping it doesn't jump up onto the ledge. It's a long way down if it does. I saw two out of their nest box yesterday, darkazana. I wonder if there's a net underneath the ledge to stop the chicks from falling to the ground.

Looking very grown up now. Two out on the ledge. One in nest trying out his wings for size. Guess it won't be long before their flying lesson.

New camera angle now. Not quite sure where they are but they look like they would "like to get in through the window now please, it's very scary up here on the ledge!" :-)
