Third egg for new partnership 37 and EB

When the nestcam stream began at 09.30 37 was on the nest beside EB. If he was waiting to take a turn incubating he was out of luck as EB remained tight on the eggs.

At about 09.45 she started getting fidgety and at times she was straining. At 09.54 she gave a lurch and stood. Was that a third egg?

It wasn’t at all clear but analysis of the footage indicates that she did lay at that point. Here she is a little later turning the eggs.

    It is excellent news that you have a pair, despite your resident female not returning. It wish White EB(07) and Yellow 37(05) a successful year.

    Congratulations to EB and 37 . Wonderful news and a great consolation to you all (and myself!) regarding the non return of the resident female.
