Incubation Day 16 - Another day full of intruders. Tom didn't get to settle for a good stretch until late afternoon when he managed 1h15 without interruption. As a whole he only incubated for a total of 2hr53. By midnight Flame will have done 20hr14.
Quite a few shots for you today as I managed to capture Flame twice during alerts.

Poor Tom, this must have been his shortest shift ever, not even time to settle on the eggs fully. Not a great start to his day... ... See MoreSee Less

Flame on high alert. This has happened a lot again today, both Tom and Flame. Every time I noticed it happening I could see a Peregrine circling above the hospital. ... See MoreSee Less

Incubation Day 15 - Another routine day with still a lot of looking and screaming at the sky... Tom incubated for 4hr57 and Flame will have done 18hr46. It's going to be a very long night shift for her as it started before 5pm, it's usually more like around 7pm. ... See MoreSee Less

Incubation Day 14 - A normal incubation day: one out one in repeat with the occasional alert. Tom incubated for 3hr35 and Flame will have done 19hr57. Quite a light day for Tom...
I managed to get a few shots of Flame as she preened before her night shift.

Incubation Day 13 - A slighter calmer day though there were still a few alerts throughout the day. No long period with the eggs unattended at least. Tom incubated for 4hrs in 4 shifts. Flame will have done 19hrs34 by midnight.
A few more shots today as I managed to catch Flame as she was taking a small break preening during one of her shifts.

Incubation Day 12 - Once again the eggs were left unattended for quite a long time (32 minutes) after Tom left to chase an intruder this afternoon. He was the one who came back and resumed incubation this time.
Few shots for you today but that includes a photo I took of Tom on the North Wing and a visitor to the ledge.
Tom incubated for 4hr05 in 3 shifts and Flame will have done 19hr04.

Incubation Day 11 - Miscommunication between Tom and Flame this morning? The eggs were left unattended for 47 minutes... Tom was incubating and left after alarm calling at 7:40. Flame didn't turn up until 8:27am. And yet I could see from home that one of them was perched for part of that period just around the corner, on the East facing side... Thankfully this is not long enough to damage the eggs but it's a bit weird.
I didn't witness any but it looks like there were a few alarms during the day.
Tom incubated for 4hr15 in 3 shifts (2 of them broken by alarms) and Flame will have done 18hr52 by midnight.
