Difficult Decision….

This has been a very strange year with the weather being a major factor in the events. First not choosing the normal turret and going to a turret off camera. It was possible to tell from the behaviour in and around the turret that they had eggs for about three weeks. Then a violent storm which washed out the nest. Some two weeks later an egg was laid on camera and looked after by both birds. We were hopeful of a successful outcome. Then mum left it for three hours, returned, left it for an hour, only to then leave it for an eight hour shift in the night and it was cold. The egg can’t survive that. Dad has not given up but mum has and Mums know best. We have taken the difficult decision to cancel the rest of the open days as there is very little to show the public.
As a project there is still much to celebrate as over the 23 year period of the nest they have fledged 76 chicks. We will return with all our enthusiasm for the 2025 season.
