Not this year....

The adult birds are still incubating, but it's now too late for the single egg to hatch.

It's now around 40 days, and it should have hatched after 32 days or so.

Sadly it must be infertile, as were eggs in 2018 and 2019. 

So I'm afraid that there won't be any peregrine chicks this year.

Not long now

By my calculations, the egg should be hatching within a day or so.

Whilst on our cycle ride today, we were lucky to see a changeover of incubation duties with Bella leaving and CR starting his stint.

The above image is a screenshot on my phone from the live Wi-Fi video link.

An update

Having obtained special permission to go up the tower last week, the Wi-Fi link from the live camera was reinstated.

Here is a screenshot of the video taken tonight on my phone.

If you want to watch the video yourself, the instructions are the same as last year.

Having studied the video footage, there is just one egg being incubated and it is due to hatch sometime around 8th-10th May, ie shortly!
