One from this morning passing on the way to work. A stare, a scatch and a poop!
In reply to Bob S:
Well caught Bob.
Amazing parental stand off, dad has seen the egg and already wants to get on it but she's not ready to hand it over yet, I think she would have had a go at him if he had got too close.
Lots more interesting stuff going on in the nest... keeping an eye on your posts.
Now they have an egg Bob you are certain to see at least one there, she wont start incubating till she's laid the last egg so if she's not on the it she will be close by guarding it.
