Diamond lays 1st egg of 2022 season

25 August 2022

All the speculation is now over. Diamond has laid the first egg for her and Xavier at the Charles Sturt Peregrine Falcon scrape box on the water tower.

The time was 0713:48 on the 26th of August.

Here is the video of her labour and the laying.

Congratulations to Xavier and Diamond and the entire Falcon family at Orange ——and to all who love this falcon family. Well done, Diamond!

Thanks to Charles Sturt University at Orange for their falcon cam where I took my screen captures and my video clip.

    1. Yes, the wait is over! I hope she only lays 2 eggs and 1 is viable. If food is a problem we don’t want it split…one healthy chick like Izzi!!!!!!!!!!
