First Hatch - more pictures

The previous two entries brought news of our first hatching today.
Here are some more images and links to pictures
1) Webcam addicts and peregrine fan, Froona, over in Holland has added many pictures to her very detailed blog which compares the activities of peregrine nests around the northern hemisphere. Try this page for some great feeding shots of our birds, captured today.

2) Anonymous posted some other other pictures here

3) Meanwhile, shown below are a few images that our project team captured direct from the video server around noon today. Particularly amusing was the moment when Mum dragged the food over towards her new arrival, only to appear to clonk it one its head with such a huge first meal!


Some of you have seen a second egg whith a small hole (pip) in it, so it's likely that we'll see at least one more new arrival today.

Great sequence of pictures Nick. I had emailed you some identical ones but they were returned 'delivery failure'. I figured you had been overburdened by some of us frantic falcon fans! Veronica
