The Eaglet has landed!

After 39 days and 19 hours of eager waiting and watching, our first egg for the year has finally hatched.

Eaglet

With both parents taking responsibility to care for their young, the roles are split between the two. The male eagle brings most of the food and, although both parents take turns to incubate the egg, the female takes on the full responsibility of incubating at night.

With the second egg still yet to hatch, we are watching EagleCAM intently to see when eaglet two will appear.
