With four peregrine chicks at Derby this year, our parent birds are going to be kept busy keeping them all fed. But they did it last year, and there's no reason to fear that any bird will be left out. Often just a bundle of white feathers seemingly huddled together for warmth and support, it can be hard when they come in view to actually count how many we have. Sometimes it's a case of "count the beaks".
Thanks to Dave Arrowsmith for uploading the top picture -and a number of others - to our Flickr group pool. (Now, instead of racing against time to beat Froona to upload some stunning screen shots, as I used to do, it's now a race against time to beat all 50 members of the Flickr pool!)
