Ten days since the first chicks hatched, things are progressing well for the three eyasses (a term sometimes used explicitly for downy chicks taken from the nest for training in falconry, which won’t be happening in this case!). Both parents continue to feed them regularly, and while there does seem to be a pecking order, there’s plenty of food to go round, with Woodpigeon and Starling both identified today as prey items.

-----------------------------------------------

a few pictures ive caught today the chicks are getting big now and the parents still keep pulling the egg under them at times,

I pass the nest site often I am going down there at some point to see if I can see them live :-)

A quick update on the chicks, they are coming on great, the male is struggling to shield them now and it wont be long before the female has the same problem,

the web cam is getting great with feeds every 2 hours sometimes less, they are both great parents, I will be sad when they go ive got quite attached to them :-),

ive just been leaving the web page on in the background with the sound on, and you know when its feeding time :-)

there is plenty of food to go round sometimes there to full to eat anymore

a few pictures ive caught over the last 2 days below and the link to the web cam,
