Every year, roughly around Easter, all eyes are on the peregrine webcams, waiting for the first egg.
Well, in true 2021 style, things have been a little different. Peregrines have been nesting on the cathedral tower since 2006, with March 23rd being the earliest date for eggs before now. This year the eggs are way ahead of schedule, catching us all by surprise!
Last year we lost our long standing female and a new female moved in to the famous nesting spot. She obviously likes to do things a little earlier!
Peregrines usually lay clutches of four eggs in roughly two day intervals so we are hoping for a third in the next 24 hours and the last one 48 hours after that. They don't always lay four, we've had a year or two with just three so let's see.
