Mom did resume incubation shortly after my last post and is down in the nest at 10:28 am but still looking at the river area very intensely. The weather on my screen has warmed to 8 C so double the earlier temperature. I must go out with the dog again.Roll eyes

10:30 am Dad lands with a fish Fish on the river side of the nest so I guess Mom was just watching him fishing? Or perhaps he was pursued by another hungry bird? We shall never know, I hope.

Mom has not risen to take the fish and both are now looking up. I wish Dad would have a little more of Superdad's caution about bringing fish to the nest. Mom had to feed her brood very quickly and also take the fish immediately or S.dad would be away with it, not wanting to attract any predators to the nest.

10:38 am Dad remains on the river front eating his fish.Byebye

Just a quick peek before I start getting ready for work.
Dad's on the nest and a few people pass by on the path but that's about it for activity.

I tweeted to Enmax to see if they could please reset the clock on the cam and they obliged within an hour.
Thank you very much Enmax !!Left thumb up

12:35 pm
Mom's home and Dad's up and soon off.

Hi again. Green LOL Yes, an untrained Australian cattle dog is not what you want in the city, especially our area teeming with squirrels and hares. I have to go shopping for a harness and some sort of strong rope or cable. Then I have a dinner theatre to attend so I may not be back on today.

Dad was incubating at noon when I returned, then he stood over the egg for a minute or so and resumed his duties on the egg where Dad remains at 12:21 pm.

Michelle I am using the time on the nest but will gladly switch to the correct time if that is what everyone else is doing. It would be easier especially for those who are reporting on other nests. Oh, I see that Enmax has corrected their clock.Very Happy Thanks Judy.

It is overcast but unfortunately not raining. NO All is well on the nest.

Mom decided to take a flyer so Dad wiggled the egg a bit and then settled down over it
