So the egg came into the nest

Body

 

Lesser spotted eagle   Väike-konnakotkas     Aquila pomarina    

 

The female has laid the eggs into the nest at extremely long intervals so it might have been supposed that she would be incubating only one egg.

The first egg was in the nest on May 2nd  and the next one  not until May 7th at about four o’clock in the afternoon. Most usually there are two eggs in a lesser spotted eagle nest. Of the hatched chicks almost without exception only one fledges because the weaker chick perishes before it becomes fully fledged.
