I haven't posted for a couple of days because Kate has stopped laying, with a total of eight eggs. She now spends quite a lot of time on the nest turning the eggs, improving the nest, sleeping or preening. No new feathers have been brought in for a few days now, so she must have decided the nest is warm enough.
Whilst on the nest Wills is bringing her caterpillar grubs and she does still leave occasionally to look for food herself. We're just playing the waiting game now, looking forward for the first egg to hatch, which could be today or tomorrow if they stick to a 14 day schedule.
The commenting system on my blog has not been working properly and I hope that's why we haven't had any comments from all the many people who've visited the blog to see the NestCam. I've changed it to pop up in a window now - We'd really appreciate any comments that people would care to make under any post message. Cheers!
