Scott finally managed to get the upgraded software to link to the ledge cam by starting from scratch and reloading everything. So now I have access to the recording software of both cameras as from noon today. So a big sigh of relief and thanks to Scott for his persistence and to all you out there for your amazing help also.
I’ve noticed that Bula is not bringing in enough food for Diamond. I thought at first she was simply hunting her own food, but sometimes she comes back to the box after an absence of just 10 minutes or so, with tell-tale blood on her cere or claws. Of course she could have just got lucky and made a kill in that time, but I suspect a cache and I’ll go out and have scout around when I get a minute.
I’ve also noticed that Diamond is much more restless, often standing over the eggs for 5-7 minutes at a time, instead of her usual 1-2 minutes. (NB No such change from Bula, however). Perhaps she senses that the time is near. I expect hatchings from this weekend, so watch this space.
