I'd forgotten to explain the footprint connection: The footprints go from her favourite resting spot a couple of metres away from (and behind) the nest, around the front of the nest and then back again.

She's doing the rounds, keeping an eye on things.

At one point while I was watching her she slunk off over the edge of the rock she was resting on and into a hidey-hole, but when I stopped in front of her nest to check it out her curiosity got the better of her and she popped her head up to have a look within minutes.



A minute later she was a bit further out.



I went for a walk and when I came back she was out and resting in her favourite spot again.

This is the third female I've seen using this same nest site over the years. They all nest guard from the same spot.
