Did not expect to catch them mating this morning!
Nice long clip of the chicks getting a good feed this morning

Interesting little clip from last night. The reaction of the chicks reminded me of 2 week old Feral Pigeon squabs. They rear up and make little puffing noises when approached. Lots of interesting little noises from the Falcon and the chicks.
One of the chicks left the box this morning and went exploring. I suspect it had a bath too as there is usually some standing water behind the plinth after it rains.
