Oi it's an Oi Egg...Oi!
The grey-faced petrel (Oi) colony have utilised their artificial burrows for laying, saving them a whole lot of digging! We hope to be meeting some chicks real soon! Recent work in the petrel colonies included remodelling some of the nest chambers of the study burrows. Birds were beginning to do some remodelling of their own after 19 years with the same colour scheme! One particular pair had burrowed under the wall and extended their burrow beyond the main chamber. So we cut off part of the back wall of the chamber to ease the access to the extension.
