All quiet

Only five days to go until our first egg can hatch!

Other nest sites have had their first chick but we are still awaiting ours.
The male and female have been sharing incubation duties, although it is always the female that does the overnight shift.

We have had some osprey intruders in yesterday and both male and female were heard to be alarm calling throughout the day. One intruder even landed close to the nest.

Today a crow was harassing the birds and eventually flew off but came straight towards the camera! The picture from the camera was then bouncing up and down and we can only assume the crow had landed on the top of it.
