Good morning everyone. Hope you’re not fed up of setting my avatar yet. It’s me that’s actually writing it today. Thank you Erica for filling in and in answer to your question – anytime. I’d love to see you do more.
Nest diary 23rd May 2013
Fish deliveries = 2
At 6.06 laddie was on duty guarding his eggs. I wonder if he hears any activity below him?
The wind howled through the mic at Lowes. This was to continue all day. As were change over’s.
11.46 and a fish has been caught and brought in for the Mrs. They swapped roles and laddie sat very low in the nest cup shielding himself and his eggs from the elements. Lady arrived back at 12.53 and after some persuasion laddie got up and let her take over incubation duties. The camera zoomed to check the eggs as it was thought maybe one had a crack earlier. Turned out it was a false alarm.
20.14 and fish number 2 arrives. Laddie had done amazingly well to catch anything in these conditions.
Magnificent Monty and the gorgeous Glesni competed their first day as expectant parents with their first ever egg. Indeed Glesni’s first ever ever ever. Remarkable to watch her learn the ropes and see how nature and instinct kicks in.
