Chopping and changing…

It’s been a quiet few days whilst Adam’s been away, but I’ll fill you in on what’s been happening here recently.

The falcon has been incubating the egg less yesterday and today, she has been more willing for the tiercel to take over incubation. This behaviour is quite different from the last couple of weeks were she’s mainly monopolized incubation. There has been times during incubation were they have left the egg for a couple of minutes, keeping close but walking along to the dog rose which grows on the ledge. There have also been a lot of change overs today, with them swapping egg duty 4 times.

I’m not sure what this behaviour means, but I’m sure our resident peregrine expert will have a few theories about it and will be able to fill you all in 🙂
