Feel so sad for Aila, she is still getting battered with wind and rain. There was also a couple of lightning strikes around 8 pm tonight too. LINK TO VIDEO
So scary for her. Night Night Aila.

Just a snap, as someone's already done the hard labour
It was very windy later and Aila was getting buffeted but by 23:00 it had calmed down a bit - still very wet tho.
Oh, that was just a lull - a flying stick?

In reply to scylla:
This hunk got blown off, coincidentally when Aila took a bathroom break. She didn't fly, and that's not a PS, it's her tail.
At that time Aila was quite dry but later the rain came down (or across!) again:
I think my "flying stick" may have been water, like this is - the rain started driving after that:
Good Morning All and Night Scylla
Must say it was with some anxiety I opened up the webcam this morning, but Aila is soldiering on through it all.
The wind woke me up several times through the night and all I could think of was her.
I hope this wind and rain abates some today, according to weather forecast the wind is not to be as strong, and it is supposed to be sunshine at 8 pm, but then we all know what weather forecasts are like, sometimes not very accurate.
If Louis manages to catch a fish in this weather then he is a hero
I do hope Louis comes in to give her a break, she has been incubating for the last 12 hours and probably longer.
