April 2016 - New life

Our pair seem to be really together this year and the first 2 photos show him bringing her food while she is incubating her 4 eggs.

Please note - most of these pictures have been taken as screen shots from the live camera feed and are therfore not very good quality.

Now we see a changeover and later the male comes back seemingly to enquire if anything is happening!!

At last the eggs hatch - the first at night (25/26th April) and the other three in quick succession during the day (26th April).

Two days later and Mum is proudly shielding her babies from the sun and Dad is keeping lookout for the marauding buzzards, seagulls and intruder peregrines.
