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!
