TPC: Do you know if there were any this year that just did not hatch, or is it like the Radisson with no eggs?  :'( I realize there is no cam and that it might not be possible to check if there were eggs.

RCF has been watching incubation behaviour by both Sol and Hurricane which is different from the courting and/or pair bonding activity we have seen between Pip and Princess. Sol and Hurricane wouldnít spend the amount of time they do nor switch off the way they have been if there werenít eggs to incubate.  Princess and Pip just spend time in/at the nestbox, they arenít using it for anything ... well Pip is certainly practicing his scrap-building but thatís not the same thing.
