Calling all falcon lovers – we have a new arrival!Our first peregrine egg of the 2014 season was laid at around 12.30am on Sunday 16 March. This compares to our first eggs being laid on 14 March in 2012 and 21 March in 2013. We’re currently trying to dig out the footage of this week’s arrival for you, but in the meantime you might want to reminisce about when the first egg of the 2013 season was laid.
If those previous years are anything to go by, when one egg is laid two or three more invariably follow. The footage we got in 2012 of the second egg being laid was truly remarkable in terms of showing the act.
Keep watching online as you might catch the moment itself as another egg arrives. Over the last six years 20 chicks have successfully fledged from the nest on top of the NTU Newton building and here’s hoping we can add a few more to that number this year.
