Yes! I have looked in on these Peregrines.....for the past three years.....

They experienced a terrible time last year, none of their eggs hatched owing to the awful mix of weather between March and June....the pair took turns to sit on those dead eggs for weeks.....so sad.

This year looks more hopeful.... I spotted the first egg not long after it was laid, but Im not sure about how many there are now.
