My brother stays in Nottingham - I could get him to go and warm up the eggs or whatever is needed.
Can you trust a wolf with eggs !

That would be good of him, Wolf, but I think it might be too late.
Blow, can't get that video player up on any browser :-(
OG - perhaps not but he is a good cook (and also one of us AB people).

Tilly - have the birds been neglecting the eggs? Will they try again?

Link not working for me either.
Question Author
They haven't been neglecting the eggs at all, Wolf. They are fantastic parents. There was a problem with the laying this year and it looks like these eggs are unviable. There were three eggs. One of them has gone.

It has made me very sad. I have been watching the web cam for about four years now.

Try again.

Mind you there is nothing to see. Just a poor peregrine sitting, in vain, on two eggs.

Thanks very much Paul.

I had forgotten that I'd gone through all that palaver. :-)
Don't think you can hover on a tablet and touching it doesn't help.
Someone's said the same on my local forum. There could be many reasons with the failure of the eggs.
The parents have been there for some years, now. One or both of them could be infertile, due to age. Or, the eggs could have become chilled.
Any update on the situation?
The female is still incubating the eggs:-(
I too have wondered about this, usually 4 chicks hatch at this site.
//From Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust FB : "they appear to be unviable this year. Whilst the birds keep incubating we're leaving well alone. If they abandon the nest we may remove the eggs for testing".//
