Poor old Dad, he obviously wants to help – he occasionally pops into the nest turrett, offering to sit on the eggs, but gets sent away again immediately. Mum is being very protective over her eggs, and not letting him sit on them. When she changes position, she spreads her wings to hide them from any observers, although we have managed to get an occasional glimpse of the terracotta coloured shells (via the nestcam). They’re not due to hatch for almost two weeks yet, so our Dad has got a frustrating wait ahead of him!
The RSPB/A date with nature website has been updated to show dates and times for this years viewings at the cathedral. It all starts on the 25th April when the chicks are due to hatch. In the meantime, you can see Dad around the spire most of each day and evening.
