Maya having some fish and bob getting some too

Checking the eggs - egg #2 could very well hatch today!
10:46 Maya takes a break
close up of bob and eggs - still can't see any pips/cracks
minute later, Maya returns
I know Patily, they never fail to amaze us
He has brought a fish which Maya is now tucking in to
33 flies off
some for bob
12:45 33 arrives and Maya rises for more fish
close up of eggs - still no signs!
Maya attempted a couple of times to reach and feed the bob but she was standing unsteadily on a stick and could not balance/move forward safely.
12:56 Maya has had a good feast and when finished she moved the wobbly stick she was standing on.
Nothing for bob this time and she settles back down
13:31 Maya's foot caught the little bob as she was rising to shake herself
bob dragged up with her
looks ok but then stumbles back
rolling down into the nest cup and onto its back
Maya after picking up a couple of bits of fish and appears to be trying to turn it, settles
Hopefully the little bob has turned itself
13:48 Maya checks the eggs and the little bob is fine
33 arrives - I think he is getting impatient waiting the arrival of #2 lol
