I have my website access back, so can start doing my Friday (or more frequent) updates. We now have three eggs, as follows
This pair has never had more than three, so I expect that is our lot.
All are doing well. A lot of prey was coming in (mostly starling, with the odd rosella, galah, pigeon and various unidentified scraps) until recently when it almost petered out. I suspect they have a stash somewhere outside.
We had a drama with the nest cam being flickering and off, and mostly off, over the last few days, but that was fixed last night (thank you, Scott).
We think there is also another peregrine around, possibly two. A large female juvenile visited the box recently and we think there might be an adult around too. This makes our pair rather nervous as the concrete hilton as prime real estate!
We also had a drama with repairs being needed to a major leak in the water tower. Fortunately, common sense has prevailed (aided by an appealing image of Diamond incubating her three eggs), the water in the tower will be lowered to below the leak and repairs postponed until after the season.
I don’t seem to be able to add photos. I’ll check that with Scott. But I should be able to add links to my youtube account, so let’s try that out.
