Description

Black-necked Stilt was standing on nest with one egg. The bird started and stopped squatting several times. Starting another squat an egg started to emerge, after going all the way down the Stilt stood up to reveal two eggs, one shiny and wet.First time I have caught a bird in the wild laying an egg.
