First of the eggs at New Lanark reserve

Scottish Wildlife Trust have announced that the peregrine falcons nesting in the Falls of Clyde Reserve have laid their first egg of the year.

A pair of breeding peregrines has nested in the Falls of Clyde gorge for a number of years now, and most years the birds are able to hatch the eggs and raise healthy youngsters, with round-the-clock surveillance to ensure they are not disturbed.

This year things are happening a bit later than usual, but that is the first egg in the nest now.
