Will there be another egg for YA and his mate?

On Wednesday it was a bit misty in the morning, but the weather turned increasingly wet during the afternoon.

There were several changes of incubator during the morning. YA just avoided an unintentional swipe by his mate during one.

There was also at least one copulation; Radio Branch were working on the quality of the images so viewing wasn’t continuous.

After the rain started YA flew down from his favourite tree and did an hour or so sitting on the eggs; there was hardly any shuffling of them.

Mrs YA did her share, though, looking equally unkeen! No sign of a third egg today.

Finally, we hope the three fit, young cyclists (thanks for helping with the wording, guys) who had come the hard way from Newcastleton and enjoyed watching the ospreys made it back safely.
