Egg 2 for Nest 2

The average time between eggs 1 and 2 is around 70 hours so we expected to see a fairly newly laid egg when streaming began today. Doubtless the bitter wind and snow showers contributed to White EB staying tight on the egg. Or eggs!

The first view for watchers at 09.49 was suggestive of another egg.

Then White EB really hunkered down as snow drove across the fell.

Eventually there was a better view.

There’ll be another post later with more on the eggs and also on White EB.
