For the last 3 years, Peregrines have unsuccessfully tried to nest on the Parkinson tower.  This year, with a little help of a custom-made nesting platform and local experts (some of whom actually work at the University), they successfully laid three eggs between 7th -11th May.  The camera provides a direct stream to the Peregrines on a live feed.

Both birds share the incubation of the eggs, which usually begins with the last or penultimate egg (laid on 11th May).  Given this, incubation usually takes 29-32 days per egg.   This means that with a bit of luck, we should see some hatching around 9th – 12th June.
