Meanwhile 33 is incubating just now.
I always feel a little sorry for 33 when the first egg hatches as no more sitting and we all know just how much he loves doing so!
But he will take up providing for his young and knowing 33, he will do so admirably.

Thanks Karen, great captures and observations.
you're welcome Cirrus :-)
Checking up on the nest and it is 33 incubating.
Enjoying a rest while Maya has a break and well may he do so just now for in a few days all the hard work will begin.
Judging by the way the nest was wobbling 33 must be on the cam post Maya gotup briefly Still 3 eggs
Morning ALL - Day 35
Thanks Patily for the capture of this morning's sunrise - always a lovely way to start the day :-)
33 incubating just now
33 rises and flaps his wings
he has now flown leaving the eggs
Within a minute, Maya arrives - checks the eggs
And after giving them a turn, settles down
33 returns with a stick!
drops it on Maya
picks it up
throws it over her to place at the other side
33 then finds the remains of a fish
33 flies off with the fish piece and Maya tidies up
