He and his partner spent days creating an underground passage that can be up to three feet long. At the end they will have made a wider chamber so they can turn around when sitting on the eggs, a task they both share. That impressively long beak has recently been used to tunnel through clay as well as catch fish.
Before that that there was a heady, noisy period of courtship and mating. He was also busy seeing off rivals and staking out territory. It would be no surprise if both birds are a bit shell shocked.
His partner will sit in the nest at night but he will take turns during the day. This is a relatively quiet and subdued period, but in a few weeks up to six chicks will hatch and both birds will be busy from dawn to dusk catching fish to bring back to the nest. They carry the fish inside their beaks and present them to the chicks head first – another good reason to have a long beak.
This will go on for another exhausting few weeks then the chicks will be taken out of the nest and taught to fend for themselves. After only four days the adults will drive away the youngsters, who protest noisily like stroppy adolescents reluctant to leave home. This is so the pair can build a new nest and go through the whole process again. This will take them into July or even August.
He and his partner have achieved a lot but still have plenty to do. Wish them luck!
