Well this is excellent news!  Well done RCF!

I'm having the same problem with Ella and Pip - they look a bit different but they are so close in size that its taking a bit of time to get good a identifying them as they bomb past the camera or have their tail feathers obscuring the balcony cam!

I have to say that Hurricane and Wingo look so much alike from far away and it seems I have mixed them up.  This post I have quoted is actually Wingo, not the newbie(on post) and Hurricane (on green ledge).

So pretty much Hurricane has been back since April 2nd. ;)

RCF - was having a look at the photos and can see that both birds have breast speckles - and it looks like the speckles go up higher on Wingo than on Hurricane - is that the case?  Or is it just the way it looks in the photos?  They are very good photos :)

So happy to hear it is indeed Hurricane. Since I came aboard, she is the only falcon who has remained and returned to claim their domain.  ;D

I  mixed up Wingo with the unbanded female, so then assumed Hurricane was Wingo.  ::) ;D

Okay ... yup, going to have to go back and look at all the photos again 🤣
Will get back to you again if I still have questions!
Thanks RCF

Not much going on here and I only check every couple of days. You know a drive by, with...... maybe a few quick stops.  ::)  Anyway it looks like Hurricane is thinking about eggs in the near future. She's been perched at the nest box or very near it for the last few days.  Wingo is never far away. :-*  She was sitting at the bottom of the clock tower and Wingo underneath her on the roofed window where the camera was.

What do you think RCF?  To me that looks like Hurricane in the midst of egg-laying or taking a wee break in the morning sun at the start of incubation ...

I'm thinking she has an least one egg.  :)  I haven't been down there much this spring, so my above photos are what I've been seeing for the past week. I haven't seen anyone laying down in the box yet but Wingo is in there a lot.  ;D
