Maya & 33’s Record Breaking Season so far:

Maya surprised us when she arrived back 12 March, the earliest date ever recorded at a UK public nest.

Blue 33(11), not to be outshone, arrived two days later on 14 March, making this date the earliest known for a returning pair.

On 28 March Maya laid her first egg, becoming the earliest egg to be laid in a UK public nest beating the current record by 5 days!

And in the early hours of 31 March, Maya laid a second egg.

Over the next few days we can expect Maya to lay another egg or perhaps she may lay another two!  But let’s hope our record breaking pair enjoy a peaceful April and plenty of good weather while they incubate their precious eggs.
