AlisonL:
The Melbourne peregrines are now back in their tiny shoebox of a nest, where they do not even have space to turn around. I would love to see them with a much more spacious nest, with a deck and perches.

The article below shows four eggs in the nest on September 9, but I have only seen three eggs whenever I have checked the site.

Hatching has now begun.

The first chick:



One of the parents has a very pronounced eye ring, and is probably new this year.



At least two chicks have hatched:



I hope they will have a very successful year.
