The three weeks that Maya and 33(11) have been back in Rutland have simply flown by! One moment they are incredibly busy preparing the nest and then the next, Maya has laid the first egg of the season.
Over the course of the past week, I think it is safe to say we have all been glued to the webcam, keenly waiting for a clue that Maya has laid a second egg. As always with wildlife and nature, having a bit of patience is key, and it certainly paid off! On Thursday evening we were lucky and were able to catch a glimpse of the second egg! We are unable to say exactly when it was laid, but it could have been anytime from Wednesday afternoon onwards. Come the weekend, we were once again drawn to the screen, this time with the anticipation of a third egg being laid. And this morning, perseverance again paid off, with there now being three eggs in the nest! But the question we are all pondering now is, will there be a fourth?
