Not to be outdone by their Norwich Cathedral counterparts the St John’s Church peregrines have produced a fourth egg – to the delight of the Bath team and the wider online audience.
At 08:00 on 31 March, the fourth egg of the 2015 breeding season was laid at Bath. It was observed that the falcon commenced full incubation on the laying of the 3rd egg on the 29th, so assuming an incubation period of 33 to 35 days from the third egg, we have a prediction of 1 to 3 May for the first egg to hatch. However, nothing is certain with this process so watch this space.”
Time between eggs:
1st to 2nd = 57 hours | 2nd to 3rd = 57 hours | 3rd to 4th = 57.5 hours – nice to be regular!
