!!! One egg remains - down from 5 eggs to 1

Mark Nash Reports:

June 5th - 2016

It’s not looking very good at all for the resident peregrines down at the Burlington Lift bridge this season, as the latest update shows that the resident peregrines are down to one egg,, (from the five eggs that they had originally produced).

The most recent update and photos sent into us clearly shows that only one egg remains in the nest box. While both resident adults are still very much attending, they are well beyond a hatch date at this point and it would appear that the pair will not be producing any offspring this season (at least from this clutch of eggs).

A big thank you once again to the staff at the Burlington lift bridge and the PWGSC for the photos and updates!
