24 May- Will the egg hatch?

This is the day there was a very good chance of the first laid egg hatching. However, although the dark 'patch' on the egg increased during the day, and there was a subtle behavioural change in the adult bird, no chick hatched.

Look closely and you will see the dark patch on the egg, probably caused by the beginning of the hatching process.
