A successful hatch at LotL and all's well on our nest - will #3 hatch tonight? Do we want it to hatch at all? Some of us are in two minds, but we've been reassured that littluns can and do fight their way to successful adulthood.
The nightwatch commences.
There just been a chick-reveal and at first sight it looks "significant" :-/ But it turns out that it's not.
Hi everyone :-)
Thanks for all the posts, pics, vids etc. on yestarday's thread. Ospreytastic as usual :-) Thanks for starting the new thread, Scylla :-) Thanks for a brilliant summary, Patily. A great read :-)
Glad to see Odin has been performing like the Super Osprey he is, in bringing back fish. Would love to see chick #3 make an appearance soon.
Don't think I'll be doing the night watch tonight but all the best to anyone who does. Sadly my wi-fi connection is performing very poorly :'-(
Absolutley delighted about the hatching at LotL, and well done to Gloria the Goldeneye :-)
Darn, I've missed you, HERON, I was/am peering thru vid history since 11pm last night and keeping an eye on the present :-( Did you get a chance to look at the vid above?
EJ just obliged with a flyaround - two chicks, egg and piece of shell is the status quo.
EJ just took another flight break, but the third chick has not made itself seen yet!
Hiya Scylla. I did have a couple of looks at the above vid. Kinda hard to tell for me if it's completely significant. I mean after last night I'm being very careful when it comes to counting bobbleheads. LOL. However it could very well be significant :-)
Hi CC :-)
Morning, CC :-*
Heron77after last night I'm being very careful when it comes to counting bobbleheads.
I thought as much, and you were wise. The eggshell has been much reduced so I thought it could be a different one, but no :-(
Sadly I'll be needing to roost soon. Plus I think I should perhaps leave chick #3 in peace to hatch. Come on my feathered friend. Don't be shy and put that egg tooth to the best use you can :-)
See you all later and happy watching everyone :-)
Goodnight, HERON :-* I can't see that egg hatching in the next few hours so it won't be as frenetic as last night. I feel the pressure's off.
HI and G'night Heron, and Hello Late-Nite Host Scylla. :) I don't think the egg will be hatching soon either, for some reason...
Will o' the Wisp is back :-)
Is that the Egg Fairy?
What a nice idea, CC :-) If only.
