DAILY UPDATE (Loch Garten nest) Thursday 17 May 2012

  • 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.

  • Sound asleep?

  • 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
