The adult male is the same male (he is ringed) but we think the female is a new bird as she doesn’t have the aberrant white feather on her head which has been present in previous years.

3 eggs have been laid which is a normal clutch size for hobbies.

Egg 1, 2nd June 6:47 pm

Egg 2, 5th June 6:46 am (60 hours)

Egg 3, 7th June 8:04 pm (61.25 hours)

Hatching should start approx. end of the first week in July

Hasty snaps to start us off:

This season the cam has been enhanced with nighttime IR, hooray!
