I heard from Luke Dray (13) who's website it is and he said it was fine to link to the site and that he has a blog also, which I hadn't spotted earlier.

http://chichesterperegrinesblog.co.uk/

I've put the link in the first post.

Thank you Patti. I have been to the Cathedral, but not when they were there. Maybe this year I should try to go when they begin to fledge. I believe a large crowd gathers.

You should Laura!! Smiley  And take some real pictures for us!   nod2  They are all looking great.  I seem to only think to check on them in the (their) early morning hours (when I'm up too late)... but they seem to be doing very well! 

5:30 AM right now (I think) ... and they are all snuggled up together. Smiley

I wish I had more time to watch all these nests!! Thanks Patti. Chichester is one hour's drive from here.. I might just try and go down if I can as we have a 4-day weekend this weekend due to the Jubilee celebrations.

Thanks Patti, alas I didn't make it to Chichester this year.. maybe one day I will - I would love to see the Peregrines. Our TV programme called Springwatch is featuring a Peregrine nest in the famous Roman city of Bath, also in the spires of a Cathedral and this has turned out to be a strange story.

The original female lost her original male/mate. She has teamed up with one of her sons from a previous clutch and they had offspring last year. This year they laid eggs and one of their sons from last year has turned up to help incubate. He's clumsy, and he's not efficient, but he's helping non-the-less and they are allowing him. All very strange. I'm not sure what stage they have reached now.. I think the programme was featuring footage from a month ago as I think the chicks were banded recently - so they are still young and only two of them. I'm not sure what the older sibling is doing now.. but will find out.
