It has been a settled day again today – normal business continues! Things are going perfectly smoothly at the moment, and we certainly hope that remains to be the case. There is still only the one egg, the next will probably come along tomorrow or the next day. We expect her to lay three eggs as she normally does, each one two or three days apart. Last year, she laid her eggs on 9th, 12th and 15th April.
33 went fishing early this morning, and since then the pair have happily sat around the bay and taken turns to incubate the egg. At one point Maya went to stretch her wings, and in the video below 33 watches her as she flies about, and it looks like she dive-bombs a duck once or twice!
33 has been enjoying his time incubating, and almost fell asleep at one point! It’s great that he’s taken to it so well so quickly, but then he did have a dry run last year and practised incubating nothing!
True to form, 33 went fishing again this afternoon, and brought back another huge trout.
