Our resident pair are still in Box 3 and the good news is that this morning they laid an egg. Hooray, it looks like they are serious about it this year. Here’s hoping that there are a couple more eggs to come then they can start incubating. In this short video you may be able to catch a glimpse of the egg centre picture whilst the birds are shuffling about
…and we hope that unlike last year, the egg will actually stay in the nest and not get chucked out. We also hope that the hobbys keep away, the last thing we went is that one of the adults gets taken by one. Watch this space!
Here is another video filmed shortly afterwards, one of the swifts had been out flying with two other swifts
and had just returned and here you can see the changeover and the egg in the middle of the nest.
