Double egg day at Kielder

This afternoon the Nest 3 female laid her second egg at 14.08.

She’d been behind the nest cup a few minutes earlier when there was still just one egg.

As on Nest 4 earlier today she had to see off an intruder in the morning.

Later in the afternoon there was another glimpse of the two eggs.

So far we have 12 eggs on the 4 nests which equals last year’s ‘best ever’. Usually the Nest 3 pair lay 3 eggs, next one due on Sunday. Could this be a record year for Kielder?
