2022-23 season's thread
One of the 3 eggs did not hatch. KATE gathered this info for us:

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.
