Nearly there?

Tomorrow will be a week since the original male returned and we normally say eggs will appear 7-10 days after mating! The female has been sitting quite low today and fussing about the nest which is a good indication she is getting broody.

The male on the other hand has been very lacklustre today, although he has mated successfully several times with the female.

Both ospreys were alarm calling at certain points throughout the day but no osprey intruder was seen on camera, although a pheasant was seen strolling in the background.

So will tomorrow be the day we see an egg?
