2022-23 season's thread

One of the 3 eggs did not hatch.  KATE gathered this info for us:

3 Jan 2023 4:24 PM

NEWS 29th December 2022 The egg was removed and I 'candled' it with a torch. The egg has a slight leak through a small crack, but is otherwise intact. Despite using a very strong LED torch, I could see nothing, so I think the eggshell is too thick. It may be that the chick simply could not emerge. I'll offer it to the Australian Museum.

Two chicks fledged: Indigo and Rubus, both males. Indigo, the elder, was last seen on 18 March when Diamond blocked his entry to the nest box.  Rubus fledged @ 46 days but died 9 days later, the result of a flying accident.

  • Looks like I shouldn't be assuming the eyas is Barru! Thanks, KATE.

    For no good reason, I cropped out a shot of Diamond in the corner overnight - her head was encroaching on the text, or vice versa:

    Then got captivated by sunrises and weather:

    Around 18:45 our time the cams went down and I've had to switch them all off - just checked, cam still buffering and these are the latest Chat comments of note:


    PS - Noticed a comment "Happy for Barru" but couldn't scroll back up any further to see what brought it on.
