Nest #5 status and archive, 2013-14

The banded male is #4999 and 6 years old. We have not seen it's mate yet as we arrived very late this year. On Nov 30, there were already 2 eggs and we do not know when they were laid. This nest is in the Hill breeding group. They are on a slope and have many good rocks to help keep the Skuas away.

We will watch to see how this season goes.

First chick: Hatched on Dec 26, 2013

Second chick: Hatched on Dec 28, 2013
