Just one brown egg so far (which puzzles me as I've just read "The eggs are white to buff with red or brown markings") - I didn't realise they 'laid-and-left'............I thought they 'laid-and-incubated'!

Does that mean there's a problem with this nest?

I was just about to say the same thing Karen. That egg wasn't there yesterday. Doesn't look right to me.

Well, the falcon is back and after staring at it for several minutes is now sat on it.....................I do hope it's not a chicken egg, put there as a 'joke'!

Apparently they lay one egg every 48 hours. Between 2 and 6 in total. Maybe everything is okay here. Fascinating to watch and quite different to the Short Toed Eagles I'm used to.

I was a bit confused about the egg being incubated then left alone for a while - looking at the Falcon Blog Section, I see they do this until the full batch is laid!

It all depends on the person....last year, I saw a live bird being torn to peices on the ledge by one of the falcons....not a pleasant thing to see:
