That's fantastic. It got up to move round and we could see the eggs.
The male and female take turns at sitting. Very impressive seeing either swoop up onto the nest then switch places.

Rough weather today. The sitting bird has wind blown twigs from the nest on it's back and it is peeing down.

You can see the water running off it's back....
I had a look at 2250. Bit of a wild night up there. The sitting bird is head on into the wind and sitting tight down on the eggs, but it is being buffeted about by the strength of the gusts.
To think that the pair flew 5000 miles to here for such a rough time is incomprehensible. One of the many wonders of nature.
