Always worth a watch; the female is Peggy

4 eggs we reckon

Any time you're stressed, have a watch

Is the camera off for easter or because it was the Maunday Money ceremony??

Can anyone one think of an "aerodynamic" reason for the tufts of feathers above and below the beak? Air speed indicators during their high speed dives??

Whilst the Peregrine feed is down, you might take a look at the Puffin cam feeds from Burhou near Alderney. Thank you Beaufort.

Yes, Beaufort is one of those whose departure I feel the poorer for. Who knows what motivates folks to leave.
I do miss his accounts of the doings of his Newfies. Did he get any replacements I wonder? Sigh.

I notice that the poor little bugger at the back of the group of 3 isn't being fed and then the fourth one appears from underneath the other three. Talk about a)the loudest complainers get fed and b)survival of the strongest. It's tough being a peregrine chick.

I like the mom's soft little cluckings as she feeds her babies.
Hope the little guy facing the wrong way turned around and got his share.

Funny you say that, about an hour ago she dragged the carcass onto the front platform and fed babies 3 & 4 (at the back) first dibs

They are amazing parents both

The feed seems to be frozen. I can hear the wind over the mic but the bird isn't moving. It was the same last night about 2200 when I had a last check before going off to bed.
