Yes, just one on cam now, unless the other one is on the part of the ledge that is out of camera shot - but I'll bet somebirde flew the coop! :o - Hope all went well and we have sightings!  :)

.....hmmm - Now they're both gone! ?  :-X

Still one on the balcony, but the other chick may very well be in the nest.

Nope, other sister fledged late yesterday - that is little brother, he's been up and down the ledge by the nestbox and I think he may well have voluntarily fledged as well, but can't be sure as if he did, he did it off camera!  We'll see what he gets up to over the rest of the day.  And the accidentally fledged sister has found somewhere new to perch - can't find her on the building she was sticking to now.

I've got the skycam keeping an eye on the ledge, the balcony cam watching the balcony and the inside box came, well watching the inside of the box - theoretically if someone comes or goes we should see it!!

So other sister has fledged. I hope she is safe, wherever she is. In fact, I hope all three are safe. If lilttle brother fledged, it is very recent, since the image I posted was from about five minutes earlier. You have an advantage, TPC, with three cams, while the rest of us can only view one.

Oh boy, well I'm not surprised - a beautiful day for fledging I have to say. - Stay safe little un-named ones!!  :-*

(I still remember a few years ago when all the kids used to come back to the nest each evening - that was awesome.)  ;D

Hopefully we will again be treated with their nocturnal visits. Bringing "Lost" along.

That would be the logical assumption but actually, the little beggars manage to stay out of sight a lot!  And on both sides of the building!!!

Chicks flapping on the edge and then a parent shows up with food.  :)

Oh wow FABULOUS video RCF!!  ;D - Little stinker took the whole thing for him/herself! 

I swear I saw a chick on the ledge beside the nest tonight - just after 7pm. So either somebirdie fledged and came back, or didn't fledge at all.  ???

What a lot of flapping!  Thanks for that great video, RCF.
Looks like Princess got an earful when the one without dinner told her to get another for them.

Just came on 5 minutes ago and suddenly Pip shows up with the "full meal" deal for a waiting chick. Hungry little??? kid. Because I would prefer not to watch him/her tear the meal, I am posting what I observed.   :P

No news is good news when it comes to peregrines.
The parents will feed the chicks wherever they are - an the female who accidentally fledged was being well fed by the adults when I last saw her ...
