This evening at 21:27 the Derby Falcon laid her first egg. I thought she would so I put the autocapture on. So I caught it all. Congratulations to the Derby Project Team!! And to all who watch the Derby Peregrine Falcons around the globe. It's wonderful!

This evening I received these absolutely amazing photo's of the Derby Peregrine couple made by Colin Pass today. He told me he expects the falcon will lay within the next 60 hours. He sure knows his way around Peregrine falcons, so we'd better keep a close eye on the Derby Nestbox the next couple of days! Colin thank you so very very much for these superb pics! There are more which I will post tomorrow!
This morning at 06:45 S2 laid her 4th and final egg for this season. With intervals of 57-58-57 hours she laid right on the clock! Brooding started by the book after the 3th egg, so we should expect first hatch at arounfd April 19!
