Our 4 hungry chicks are being fed more often as they grow quickly and Mum and Dad are taking advantage of the good weather to find them some good fresh food. She makes sure they all get their fair share. They are beginning to look like peregrines already!!
Archive for April, 2012
While our peregrine pair continue to soldier on amidst high wind and rain, unfortunately this was not the case for the RSPB marquee in Cloisters garden. The terrible weather last night has blown down the tent and all that was in it, so, of course, they were not able to open today. Let’s hope the weather improves for tomorrow so that the clear up operation can go smoothly for Tuesday when they expect to reopen.
Needless to say it doesn’t bother our pair. Asleep on the job!!!
On the Home page of our site you can access a short video showing the four chicks being fed by Mum taken this afternoon.

As I write this the fourth chick is emerging from its shell. Dad finally arrived with some food for Mum and we got a good look at the chicks and clearly visible was a chick fighting its way out of the egg .
Pictures to follow.
Shes brought the food back so may feed the youngsters now. Let you know soon.
On a cold wet morning with Mum doing a superb job we have a second chick!! Picture to follow.
