Falcons update

Ok so yesterday I posted that the Falcons were still waiting for their eggs to start hatching.

This was still the case up until early evening when suddenly things seemed to be happening.

The downside was that you couldn't get a good view of what was going on as both birds were very much involved in what was happening.

When I logged on this morning









 The first two have now hatched and there are now two little white fluffy chicks

I'm afraid my photo's aren't great but if you want to go and keep an eye on their progress

you can by clicking on the link below


So the Duchess of Cambridge may not have had her second child on the Queen's 89th birthday but the Falcons first two chicks arrived instead.

  1. Awww, how cute. It's great that you can watch what's going on. I put up a new bird box right by the side of the window a few weeks ago and almost straight away I had bluetits checking it out. They've definitely built a nest as I've seen them coming and going with nesting material but it's gone a little quiet, though I do still see them from time to time so I'm hoping that one may be sat on eggs. I wish I had a camera in there so I knew what was happening.

    1. My neighbours have had a nesting box on the corner of their garage for over twenty years and to their knowledge never had anything nest in it. This weekend I discovered they have got blue tits nesting in there. We have never seen blue tits in the garden and suddenly they have started appearing and then I discovered them sitting on the fence by the neighbours box and all of a sudden another popped out the box. My neighbour hadn't noticed until I told her so she is now very excited.

  3. Oh, so cute. Are you back at work or have you been able to see what's happening on-line? Do hope you're feeling better. Take care.

    1. I came back to work this week but have been following them on line whilst I have been at home. Very additive once the first egg had hatched. I've now got a friend of D's hooked too and she messages me with daily updates as to what she has been observing.

    1. They are four cute little balls of fluff. Not so great when the parents bring in a pigeon they've caught for dinner, can be quite gruesome viewing then but watching the little one's putting up their little beaks to be fed is fascinating.

    1. Aren't they just and I am totally hooked on watching them, I think I have bored D to tears with their daily exploits.

    1. Aren't they. They will be in the nest for around six weeks before they fledge and I am really enjoying watching them, well that's an understatement I am totally addicted to watching them.
