Many webcam watchers have captured screen-grabs like the ones above and posted them on our Flickr Pool here As the weekend goes on, the Project team will try and embed a selection of your pictures at the end of this post.
All being well, we can expect the other three eggs to hatch in the next few days. (See below for news of a special Bank Holiday Monday event at Derby Cathedral)
We expect feeding to begin quite shortly after the chicks start appearing. But here's where we need your help. Nick Dixon, the national expert on peregrines nesting on artificial structures such as buildings, pylons and bridges, is keen to discover how long it is between hatching and first feeding - so please leave a comment with the time when you first see the tiny chick being offered food and maybe again, when you see it actually taking food and swallowing it down.
The parents are incredibly delicate and gentle when they are feeding small chicks as you will see.....amazing for birds that are predators - how marvellous is evolution!
Do go along....Derby is quiet on these holidays and parking is easy (though you will probably still have to pay).......
