Nice to meet you, Daisy.

If it goes according the two first eggs, you have right.
First egg * Monday, 9th Mars about 5pm
Second egg * Tuesday, 12th Mars about 2 pm

On the other hand, EJ can now be more secure with Odin and the whole situation.. and she seemed to me, like having a new egg today :D . If it happens, it can come late today, maybe during the night.

I don't remember the stats, what do they tell about EJ laying eggs.

Last night there was a heavy snowfall, so sitting on the eggs soaked and covered by snow is by now familiar to her. I watched her on the nest in the night cam, afraid that the cold might affect eggs (though EJ was sitting on them all the time, surrounded by snow. Every now and then EJ had to stand up and shake the snow from her wings. On the LG forum 13th April there are videos about the horrible night of EJ. Even Odin might have failed to catch any fish in that weather for her until morning. It looked a bit strange when Odin came to see her, instead of bringing fish he wanted to mate with her while she was sitting on the eggs :shock: well, maybe he did it to accelerate her blood circulation - don't know :roll:

I usually write in Finnish on the Finnish LG Forum, I'm the same Martta :wave:

The Stats are fine and clear : Mostly EJ lay a new egg after three days!

Really hoping that the weather gets soon better.

EJ is calling for some time Odin, as you can see, he is not thinking to answere. It might be good for EJ to have at least some flyabouts before maybe a could night. Odiiiin!

Hopefully the night won't appear such a horrible what Martta was telling us above!

At last. Mating or sitting? EJ made a very short flyabout,

and wanted immediately back to brood eggs. Odin left.

Now I can hear her calling again.

:loveshower: Three Eggs !

Just saw 3 eggs there, when EJ stayed upp a little. Odin was in the nest maybe a half an hour ago.. if that was already something to do with the new egg - it was appeared or was coming to.

Very strange indeed.

On the branch with a morning fish EJ looked as never before - frozen. But there was something more then: she had an 'awareness' of the new coming egg too!

... strange things this too? Body guarding? ... who / whom?

Kuva Kuva Kuva

EJ got it self away.. she was not specially fond of that action.

Don't know, if Odin has yet seen the third egg. Now, EJ is waiting and calling for an evening fish.

ViestiKirjoittaja Annie » 15 Huhti 2012 22:39

... more strange things! Odin has acted the whole evening very odd; ignoring her, no evening fish.. grey moss at last and dangerous mating, he just was jumping (with foots) wildy on EJ.. wonder if the eggs won't damage one day!

Is Odin to pay back, that he came later after Blue XD?

The Eggs.

Today : the third egg, a half of the fish for lunch to EJ (no more), matings, moss and a huge stick on EJ from Odin.. what is it now, Odin?.. after that all snowing and freezing early morning, EJ had to sit on in the nest brooding. :(

The darkness followed, EJ stopped calling for Odin. Good night, and good for tomorrow!!

.. occurred to me just, think, if EJ is planning to lay a 4'th egg! ... she looks to me a bit tired and somehow over calm.

Hello Loch Garten and it's Friends!

The weather has some days been miserable here, but the breeding is quite ok. :)

Odin is coming to brood.

Odin brought today new yellow 'flowers' to the nest, a headless fish of course too!

All seems to be progressing well at Loch Garten.

Hatching day should be around May 15
