    Ooo, found it!! It is a strange nest - is she on little stones? They don't do comfort these falcons do they! I found a video of her laying egg no. 4. I'll have a read now and see how long til they hatch. All this egg watching is addictive!

    Kateb,


    My cat Neville is a very large ginger (sorry Red) Maine coon. Your gorgeous picture could well be him. He is like a miniature( well bigger than an average cat) lion. Bye the way the cheeping is from the hen masters babies! Nev just
    looks at the screen and decides to ignore it. Not edible enough to incite movement.The Perigrine falcons are very addictive especially when they look up at the camera. Last year a cat was walking along the parapet towards the chicks. This is sooo very high up as you can see. I felt so totally helpless. Both for the chicks and the cat. Luckily he wondered off.
    Every best wish
    Pam

    Maine coons are my favourite breed! My son works with someone who breeds them and I'm toying with the idea of getting one. The problem is which colour to choose! Ginger cats are adorable, but I love stripey tabbies too.

    That must've been awful to watch - from both points of view. I'm so glad it turned out OK. Wonder how the cat got up there?! It must've been the Chris Bonnington of the feline world!

    Thanks for that it is a better size.
    I just make the pic a suitable size to pop into a corner and have it running with all the other stuff on the one screen. (About seven sites, including my emus, sized to fit available gaps)
    I know it crashes my pooter about once week or so but it's soon loaded up again.

    Its html code Ollie. Its just the link typed into the forum here in a code that opens another window within the Hen Cam forum. The only reason the picture looks any different from going directly to the Derby site is that its inside the Hen Cam site, in a way...

    Do you use html? If so I can give you the code.

    To have link open in a new page so that the reader doesn’t leave the original site.

    I've not seen a chick myself yet but there are some lovely pics on their Diary, which isn't much diffferent as their cam is a "once a 5 second shot" type.

    Its tea time for them. They get lovely dainty bits and are fed in turn, no one misses out.

    Here is the link for the Peregrine falcons in Rochester, NY (my hometown) on the Kodak building. Since 1998, this pair of falcons has been hatching and raising their little ones. http://rfalconcam.com/rfc-main/mainView.php
    Mariah is currently sitting on eggs...I'm not sure how many. They are fun to watch. When the babies start flying, bird watchers keep an eye on them to make sure none get hurt or stuck somewhere. There have been some rescues in the past.

    Well, I was just going to post that I've had an amazing ability to avoid meal times. But - just looked at the Peregrine cam and ... I can't say that anymore. Sob.

    Still the unhatched egg. Other chicks are sat there with their mouths open, probably screaming for food :)

    That poor little chick with its head sticking out doesn't look very happy. I was relieved to see it move a tiny bit.

    ooh, we have peregrine falcons here at the fishery. They come back yr after yr, and have returned now but not sure how many chicks this yr. The RSPB come and ring them. Most we had was 3 chicks and think only one last yr. There are quite a few around here. Also Greater spotted woodpeckers and kingfishers - which by the way are tiny! I never knew how small they were!

    My sister in law has a family of robins too - they don't care if you're in the garden, they just fly in and stand and peck wherever they like!

    Mother falcon (or papa) is sitting on the edge of the nest looking at the view and her/his babies right now. Very sweet.

    Did you get there in time? She's back in the nest with them. LOL - their "bathroom/waste disposal" area is visible today (the stack of feathers, etc in the lower right corner on the other side of the post.)

    Can you see all 4 of them Vicki? So cute when they are asking for food. Although what they eat is more scary that The Girls' menu...
