Reserves

Exactly on schedule, if anything a day earlier than expected, the first chick has hatched at the Bath RC church Peregrine platform. We will be expecting the remaining chicks to hatch over the next few days to make up a full brood of 4. Feeding will begin now, meaning this first-born will be slightly stronger and bigger than the others at first, but given plenty of food the others will quickly catch up.

Being so small heat loss is a big issue, so the falcon will spend most of the time incubating the reamining eggs and keeping the young chick warm, hence we are liekly only to get a glimpse once the male delivers food to the nest and the falcon feeds the chick. 

In the screen grab above you can see the hatched shell (reddish) on the left of the incubating falcon.
