Another egg for YA and Mrs YA!

Mrs YA and YA had shared incubation much of the morning with YA having a long stint when Mrs YA took a large fish (whole) off for a late breakfast.

After her return to the nest she did some stick fiddling and brought in moss. By 13.30 she was just sitting near the egg – it is a warm day at Kielder.

But about 15 minutes later she started to fidget and chip. She went over the cup, YA came ontl the nest and jumped around before going onto the edge.

Then YA sees what has happened! The egg was laid at 13.53.
