One of the falcons which nests at Derby Cathedral laid an egg this morning.
The moment was captured by web cams positioned over the falcon's nest - it happened just after 00:30.
She normally lays around four eggs a year.
In the early hours of this morning, Derby Cathedral's Peregrine Falcon laid her first egg of 2014.
Peregrine Falcon eggs are a deep reddish-brown colour.
Last year falcon fans had to wait until April 3rd for the first egg and this year she is one day later than 2008, when she laid on March 28th.
The earliest ever date was in 2009 when she laid on March 23rd.
