Great news! If you have been watching the webcam you’ll know that there is now a second egg in the Manton Bay nest. Maya laid the egg at about 5:30pm yesterday evening. Here’s a photo taken earlier today of the two eggs during a brief period when they were uncovered. We’re now hoping that Maya will lay a third egg by tomorrow evening.
Today has been another relatively quiet day in the bay, with incubation shared between 33 and Maya. Strong easterly winds have made fishing difficult for 33, but he has managed to catch two small Perch in a sheltered bay close to the nest. The video below shows him presenting Maya with the second of the two fish. He then settles down to incubate the eggs – watch how carefully he positions himself ready to incubate the eggs.
