Yesterday afternoon I was watching the goings-on in the nest (via the camera, available to public from Saturday) and it was very apparent why mum is better at incubating the eggs than dad. She left to have a break, and dad took her place. Or at least, he tried to. Being a third smaller than her, he isn’t quite big enough to cover all four eggs, so he’d sit on three and have a wing covering the other. He changed position about every 30 seconds, obviously very uncomforbably and looking somewhat perplexed, not quite sure how to do it. He should’ve found himself a girl who only lays 3 eggs – life would’ve been so much simpler for him! He’s doing his best, bless him. No wonder he was tired and having a nap later in the evening!
