Good question that needs answering.

I was thinking exactly the same thing. They did say that they would share the reason "on a later programme" although I haven't heard it being mentioned again.

Regards,

Probably the reason is something they don't want us to know about and think everyone will just forget about it.

That's what I was wondering as well. Everyone who showed concern towards this and put in complaints wants to know the result. They aren't doing themselves any favours but not releasing the result however I wouldn't expect they would if it points to them in any way.

The fact that they haven't does point to it being them. I know if eggs didn't hatch after I'd disturbed birds in front of millions of viewers then I'd be keen to get it out there that it was not my fault.

I'm not asking for a date Derek.....

I thought that a brood patch was for brooding, not the breast, so just wondered what impact this breast plate would have on brooding eggs. You are a breeder I believe so was just look for some insight.

I have never seen this kind of plate used before, looks wholly unnecessary to me. It seems a bit risky to me to have done this when the falcon was incubating, it would be interesting to know the development stage of the failed eggs to see if they correlate to disturbance date.

Lots of love

Mike did you read all the comments? Derek made that comment when he and many others believed the plate was staying on. Paul added that the plate was only to protect the bird whilst it was fitted. If it had stayed on then it would interfere with brooding to what extent who knows?
Anyway if you're stuck for a date put a nice frock on and I'll take you out 😜

What a twisted web we weave Mike Michael with an x. Too many people on the forum with names to cover who they actually are while they attack people from behind the cover of a made up name.
