Derby's eggs have just hatched:

Seems to be a 5 sec time delay but excellent clarity!

Even with the delay I really like this camera. You can see the rusty colour egg shell at the back of the nest.

Good one of the chicks this morning. I know falcons like nesting in rocky areas etc., but the chicks dont look comfortable on gravel:

Ouch - that's looks like a really painful place to be for the chicks!

Great photos and catch up SM - thanks.

Wonder why Derby has been sitting on the other side away from the chicks. She has been there for ages.

I know they are not always sitting with their chicks SM but is that Derbys partner sitting on the wall. I have just had a look and no-one is sitting on the wall but on the right of the pic it looks suspiciously like a bird on the floor, I hope that is not Derby. I wil have a look in later to see if things change.
