      I'm not sure of the equivalent within the bird community, but a popular saying within the Diving community is:

      Take only pictures and leave only bubbles
      From what I was reading on the Notts Trent Uni site, one of the initial reasons for setting up these webcams was for security. The benefit is that the camera can be used by many others to observe the activities around the nests.

      This time of the year many of the birds have laid their eggs. Some have already hatched and the feeding is beginning.

      Soon those chicks will start fledging.

      You can view the Ospreys at the RSPB Reserve at Loch Garten at the Visitor Centre or Hide where the RSPB have powerful telescopes where you watch the Osprey nest through. The admission price is at present 4.00 with a reduction for Old Age Pensioners and Younger People under the age of18. RSPB members get free admission to the visitor centre. This is for those who are on holiday in that area between now and the end of August. The RSPB Reserve at Loch Garten covers a big area and if your lucky you can see the very rare Crested Tit and Capercaillie and also apart from the birds there are Red Squirrels where they don't have the Greys to worry about and also there are some animals that are found their, but you are unlikely to observe them are the Scottish Wildcat and the Pine Martin.
      Ian.

      Re: Peregrine Falcons 2014

      The fourth chick has hatched at Nottingham Trent University today or last night.

      I tried to get a screen dump just now during feeding time but it didn't go well. I'll try again later, unless someone else gets there first.

      Mum and dad will now be getting very busy feeding them all.

      Ian: Do you know roughly when the eggs might hatch for the Osprey?

      Thank you Ian.

      As for the picture of the 4 Eyases at Nottingham...

      Peregrine Falcons 2014-nott-peregrine-03.jpgPeregrine Falcons 2014-nott-peregrine-04.jpg

      Whilst checking for the name of the chicks (eyases) I came across a news article from the Norwich Catherdral site:

      http://www.edp24.co.uk/news/video_fi...dral_1_3574801


      Three of the eggs have now hatched at Norwich:

      Peregrine Falcons 2014-norwich-peregrine-03.jpg

      Hopefully the fourth won't be too far behind.

      I'm not watching the Norwich Web cam as it stops too frequently. If you wish to give it a try though, you can find it here:

      At the moment it is possible to here the eyases chirping away with mum sitting on top to keep them warm.

      Re: Peregrine Falcons 2014

      Another little update...

      3 of the chicks at the Goshawk nest in the New Forest have hatched. Below is a picture of them being fed I believe for the first time:

      It appears that peregrine falcons are very popular, as this story about them nesting at Norwich Cathedral popped up on my local news yesterday:
      BBC News - Norwich Cathedral peregrine falcon's third chick hatches

      There's a webcam for those too, which has over a million views:

      It's alright. That webcam was down earlier and when it does work it only lasts a few minutes.

      If someone could cobble a page together with multiple camera links so that you could watch more at the same time I would be grateful.

      Re: Peregrine Falcons 2014

      The eyases continue to grow at Nottingham Trent University. The last one to hatch is still the smallest, but growing fast.

      Both parents were feeding the young just now.
