Website access – three eggs

I have my website access back, so can start doing my Friday (or more frequent) updates.   We now have three eggs, as follows

27/08/2020 416 Di 1st egg
29/08/2020 1600 Di 2nd egg
1/9/2020 0157 Di 3rd egg

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.

  1. Great to see your posts here again, Cilla. I was here checking to see if you had posted the “Eggs laid” info. 🙂

  2. Thanks, Cilla, for the excellent summary of the most important events for now. And many thanks to Scott, who created all the necessary technical requirements, so that we can all indulge in enjoyment.

    I’m looking forward to another unique season with our beloved couple, Diamond and Xavier, and i wish all observers a lot of fun and the eggs “good development”.

  3. Congratulations on three eggs!
    And thanks Cilla for updates and thanks Scott for repairing.
    I’m so glad as I couldn’t access your website for a long time. (I have watched YouTube.)

  4. Apologies. For some reason, I cannot read your comments. I’ll try later coming in through the ‘back door’.
