Thread subject: Marge has four eggs!

Tiger, I presume you'll have let them know it's not a first for Scotland?
martyc35 04/27/13 04:45 pm That is phenomenal! I sure hope at least some of them hatch. Hard to think of her managing to care for all four, though.

Tiger 04/27/13 05:43 pm No it is not even a first for Lady. She had four eggs in 2005.

Peebles backup nest raised four chicks in 2005.

More recently there have been four fledged chicks in another nest but I do not have a reference off hand.
Tiger 04/27/13 05:46 pm Here are some LOTL Records
Tiger 04/27/13 05:56 pm The four chicks I was talking about. See A brood of 4 ospreys
Anne-UK1 04/28/13 04:31 am It's laying four eggs more than once that they're asking about. Well I know EJ has, thanks to the stats page you linked the other day. I wonder if there have been any others. Almost impossible to tell for most nests of course.

As for Marge. Well, I was happy she'd laid one egg. Four is amazing, but I'd sooner one or two didn't hatch if it gives the others a better chance.
Tiger 04/28/13 06:16 am Well Betty here at DPOF laid four eggs four years in a row. 2003-2006

Millford Conneticut raised four chicks more than once.

This nest did so too. See Here
Anne-UK1 04/28/13 12:40 pm They're asking about Scottish nests. Keep going Tiger ;)
FOB Webmaster 04/28/13 03:16 pm Blackwater fledged four in 2006
DaisyG 04/28/13 05:32 pm It would be absolutely amazing if all four hatch but is to be hoped that at least a couple of them do.
Celeste 04/29/13 08:15 am Absolutely exciting and wonderful news!
