30th March 2011

It is normal for the female to leave the egg(s) at this early stage. She may be away for an hour or two. Rest assured that she will cover the clutch during rain showers. Should a corvid be foolish enough to get too close there will be a swift return to safeguard her eggs.
Eggs are laid at 2 to 3 day intervals. In fact it can be as accurate as every 57 hours!
This would mean the second egg arriving between 9am and 4pm on Friday. We will have to wait and see. These girls have a mind of their own so she could be later than this!

30th March 2011 - 1st Egg

We think the first egg was laid on the 30th March 2011. It was first spotted by Bob prior to 7am, and we know the tray was empty at 23:00 on 29th. If any insomniacs out there have a more accurate time, please let us know.

The female is spending some time on the tray each day - especially around the middle part of the day. From her behaviour we hopefully may get the first egg early next week........ fingers crossed!

9th March

Following a period of some technical difficulties, we are now back on-line with the webcam, thanks to Andrew's technical expertise this morning. His reward was the first person to see the female sizing up the nesting tray.
