Four eggs still on May 1st at Bath

Still four eggs at Bath; got a good look when the male headed off after a low buzzard. Male returned a few minutes later and stood over the eggs shouting at the world. The female took the hint and headed into the box as himself left. She settled on the eggs but was very fidgety. Both birds were clearly clucking away when on the eggs, so it shouldn’t be long now. I’ll have a look tomorrow again.01/05/2013
