Nest #4 status and archive, 2016-2017

This female is 7 years old and was frist seen back at Cape Royds in 2012. This is her very first nest. When we arrived on Nov 9 she was in a different nest. Nov 10, she moved to a new nest with a new mate. They are in the Seaview breeding group near the edge of the colony with easy access to the ocean. First egg was laid Nov 11. She is new at this, lets wish her luck. Second egg was laid Nov 14.
