Think there are different females. Those who visited lekking site earlier, they are incubating somewhere already. Late ones can be failed with early clutch or simply flegmatic.

ok, Thanks.
So you would think that this female is not on eggs yet?
It would be nice if the camera could capture a nest, but they are so hard to find.

8 May
It was rainy night, but first male voices before 3 AM.
Soon after first voices continuous talk of local male follows, supported by Ural Owl calls.
Since 4:40 that monologue of Capercaillie slows down. Not sure, but maybe that males was always on tree.
6:08 some flight noise (of Cc?). Wind is getting stronger.
