Default Falcons

I have a 2 year old lugger male and a 2014 female lugger been in together for 3 months . Not expecting nothing at all this year but the male as been displaying to the female ie head bobbing and chanting but the female not interested as yet . My question is how many of you have had first year young falcons laying .

I no they say 3 years to maturity but I've heard odd falconer say they've had or heard of first year young laying . I'm not bothered at all just curious . I no spars and kestrels and small falcons seem to be a little earlier . Hobbies ,Merlin's act
Thanx for replies guys I thought every one had given up on the iff lol
