Information - the breeding season 2003

For the 2003 season a new nest box was built. Although the falcons did copulate and made a nest scrape, no eggs were produced, possibly because the male and the female are brother and sister. Therefore brown coloured hen eggs were placed in the nest and especially the male started to "incubate"

Later the hen eggs were replaced by the 15 days old Peregrine chick Tiffany from the Swedish Peregrine project. When the female, after several attempts, finally landed in the box, Tiffany immediately started to beg for food and the couple started to feed her and the adoption was successful. Tiffany fledges in the beginning of July and was present in the neighbourhood at least up to September.
