Almost exactly a month ago now I introduced you to the Peregrine Falcons who are nesting near to my office.
Over the last four weeks there has been a lot of activity around the nesting site and we have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of an egg.
The female has been eating a lot of the grit which I am assuming is a bit like chickens (don't they eat a lot of grit or something to help harden the shells of the eggs).
Several times she has looked like she was about to perform only to then change her mind and fly off.
To my surprise yesterday when I logged on look what was sitting in the nesting box and on Mothering Sunday's of all days.
then by lunchtime today there were two
My understanding is they usually have two or four (last year she hatched and raised four)
The male hadn't been around too much today
But he did bring her a mouse to share this afternoon
The female is still tooing and frowing and I am led to believe won't start to properly incubate until she has laid her last egg but there is at last something happening and I am already so excited.
I think it's now a case of watch this space.
