The many helpful comments from webcam watchers allow us to go back and retrieve footage, or to report news and updates on this blog. Last night, there was a suggestion that by 11pm (Tuesday evening) all four of our chicks had hatched. In the end we now appreciate that only two have so far actually hatched. It can be very difficult to see what's going on when most of the time the adult peregrine is sitting on her eggs or chicks - but all comments are incredibly welcome, though sometimes may be delayed by moderation rules being employed. These all help us to share and understand what's going on and especially to retrieve key moments from our cameras, like the amazing video clips below of this afternoon's first chick to hatch seemed worth sharing with the world! (Notice how the cracked egg moves.)
Not all pictures are posted here. Some are shown on Twitter page (see right hand side of this blog's homepage for a summary of our recent tweets)
Others pictures and observations may be posted on Facebook, whilst many of you keen webcam watchers are also posting your own screen grabs to our Flickr page - for which many thanks to all of you.
All these links and more - including our Donations page - are on the right hand bar of this blog's homepage.
And a big welcome to any BBC Radio Derby listeners who are new to this project but may have heard about it on the radio last night or this morning. 'Enjoy' as they say!
