A whole lot of hatchin’ going on!

As dedicated Peregrine watchers have already noted, at least two of our falcon’s eggs have hatched.   The weather is a little bit cool, so the female is spending a lot of time brooding the youngsters to keep them warm.  However, activity at the nestbox will increase as there are hungry mouths to feed.   Enjoy the show!
