13:08 Tiercel incubating the eggs

13:21 Pecking at the stones

13:26 A fly buzzes around him and catches his attention

14:26 Falcon comes in there is a lot of vocalisation but the Tiercel seems reluctant to move. The falcon has some of her lunch left on her right talon so we can assume she has just had a feed.



14.29 The tiercel finally moves off the eggs and the falcon takes over incubation duties.
