At 8.04 am yesterday (Wednesday 14th April) we were delighted to see NC0 lay her second egg.
As expected, NC0 stood up shortly after laying which gave us all a good view of both the eggs she has laid so far. As this is only NC0’s second breeding season, it wouldn’t be unusual for her to lay just the two eggs.
Since laying her second egg, LM12 brought NC0 a fish. Maneuvering around on the nest can be a bit of a challenge and she almost stood on her egg! As you can see, ospreys curl their talons while moving around on the nest. This prevents them accidentally puncturing the egg shell if their feet do get a bit close.
We look forward to seeing what happens next on our nest.
