The fourth egg still hasn't hatched. I switched on in time to watch the last feed (pigeon) - I noticed one of the three was left hungry! She gave it a bit of meat, then snatched it back and ate it herself................the poor little thing was still begging when she carried off the remains!

I think it might have hatched as she is eating a large piece of egg shell, I hope it will be ok but its going to be a lot smaller than the others.

Just been watching feeding time

The last chick hatched (No 4) is being swamped by his slightly elder siblings

Unfortunately I cannot seem him/her lasting long, but fingers X'd he may

I've just watched the chicks being fed and I'm afraid the youngest ( smallest ) didn't get anything,but one was a right greedy one took most as it was nearest to the hen.

Ah yes...I saw webbed feet...those Falcons are obviously bigger than I imagined...!

Amused me how she offered some quite big lumps, then took them away again when whoever grabbed it couldn't quite manage...."Okay, I'll eat that bit then.." glad to see the last arrival seems to be fighting his corner and getting fed too.

He/she really seems to be in the mix at the moment

What a really caring Mum she is & a good Dad too

The weather has been reasonably kind to them at the moment

They are starting to move around now, two are in the far corner and the other two still in the middle, father is looking after them, just the middle ones, he is keeping close too he's pretty hopeless at fatherhood quite a laugh at times.

It's wonderful watching them grow up - their feathers are coming through now and the largest of them is flapping like mad. Though it does worry me when they look where their parents are standing and try to join them (they aren't too steady on their feet yet!).
