Yes, RtB, we shall see for definite eventually, I hope :-/
EJ will surely have to get right up at some stage for toilet purposes, however briefly.
I've just looked at some of my own footage, including the timeframe you posted. Does this look like an egg with legs to you?
EDIT: taken at 00:11:36 on Thursday 17th May 2012
Well, not legs, but it does look like part of a chick to me :-) I don't believe that egg is intact
It confirms video, RtB. But I was concerned to see it look like an objet on the nest at one stage.
EJ woke up for a minute...
but she's asleep again now in the same position as before.
EJ just raised her head for a moment to shake off some sleet, but looks to be resting. No chick noise
Late night greetings, RtB and Scylla. I've had a bug for the last 3 days so been in bed sleeping at odd times, so here I am, repeatedly looking at dodgy videos!
First I thought egg shell definitely broken but then EJ rolled it, so perhaps not!!!
Edit - I meant the nest videos, not any other sort of dodgy video LOL
Just when EJ was getting some rest, cheeping noises have disturbed her again. She is certainly mantling
oh did you see that? There seemed to be an egg or shell pushed out in front of her talons. She has turned round and is blocking the view now :-/
I also heard what sounded like a crunch. An eggshell breaking?
At around 1m20 into the clip, EJ moves around. As she moves her feet, a crunching noise is heard. To me it sounds like an empty eggshell rattling against the other eggs
EJ was very wiggly around 01:20 and I could hear cheeping. You two are definitely hearing and seeing more than me!
Eggshell kicked out front?
Cluck cluck :-)
Must get some bread 'n honey to keep me going.
The chick is cheeping a lot more now
