And then there were four…

As predicted, the fourth egg was laid yesterday. There is a chance a fifth will be laid, but the clutch has now reached the average size for this species. The serious business of incubation will get under way now, with all being well the young hatching in late April/early May.

    1. I’m afraid not – the first egg was only laid on 27th March, and incubation will be around 28-33 days. The chicks should hatch at the end of this month, or early May.
