patily said:Do you remember the extraordinary number of eggs Mrs G laid the year 11/98 failed to return?7 in total I believe
I did not know about that - amazing! :o
As for the big surprise this morning - I was thinking "I bet there's been excitement going on while you're away with the fairies" ;)
Here's a video of CJ7 laying her egg - it was a longer labour than I've given the impression of, but it was quite low key, no "grunts" could be heard over the wind.
The reveal @ 03:35_07 :-*
PS - See what I'm like, ALISON !!! ;)

In reply to scylla:
An interesting video Scylla and in many ways quite sad. I guess its getting close for LS7 to return for them to produce fertile eggs now.
In reply to tony:
Probably best not to speculate anyway as the site is supposed to be 'secret'.
Great video, scylla! I thought I could hear one or two little squeaks from her just before laying.
I have to agree with Alison and Richard. It might be safer to just remove the question Tony?
EDIT:- Thank you Tony. Despite the problems this morning!!!! (1/5/) I have managed to acknowledge your change.

Great blog about the egg.

This was CJ7 this morning when she returned to her egg - some puzzlement?
To our surprise, the egg survived all day - CJ returned late at night to check on it:
