He has his mother's eyes. :p They still have a bit of a focus problem though. Someone will likely give it a tweak soon.
Edit: They heard me and fixed it! I have to use these powers for good.

Is that a cruise ship in the back?

Yes. Pesky things. Possibly Crystal Serenity, that one.
Wish it were not so as this does nothing much for anything when it comes to an actual living area really . IMO of course. But it is a shared opinion of many here .

Apparently it's night time there. Eggbert seems to have become too big to sit on, but hanging out quite contentedly. Something else is tweeting in the background.

I find it soothing as well.

Just starting watching - quite magical. Look forward to further cams.

The thing's almost as wide across as a canoe is long, and can fly at highway speeds; nothing much remarkable here.

Both parents are currently in right at this moment.

The cam was zoomed in to the chick about 4 hours ago.

There is a 12 hour wind back with this cam.

Seems to be blowing a bit fresh there just at the moment.

They just changed cameras, and while the nest is still centred, the lovely view is gone. I hope they change it back.

It is one cam but sometimes it gets pointed a bit too much the wrong way so the auto focus goes to pot. I think there is a short period of close ups once a day or so.

This is where the parent allows the chick to sit out a little way by itself. It may well be in post guard stage in about a week's time. That is where both parents go out to feed.
Mostly the food is quid.
