Number 3 for Nest 3

The third egg was laid on Nest 3 today. Early this morning there were still two when the female handed over incubation to the male.

By 11.40 three eggs were visible but the recording is corrupted so no image, unfortunately.

At that time previous footage was being downloaded. After many views it is possible that there were three eggs by 10.48 but we can’t be sure.

The four nests have thirteen eggs between them which is a record ‘egg year’ for Kielder.

What a day it’s been – UV arriving back in the UK and a new egg too!
