    Ive been watching this pair for awhile now and
    I have the feeling that the eaglets have hatched. Mom seems to spend too much time off the nest to be incubating eggs. Dad seems to try to distract from the nest and both are flying a lot now. I spent an hour or so this evening and got some surprising reactions from the pair. They seem not to be too bothered by me.
    Here's a few new shots.

    nice shots, I'm a bit north of you and the nest I've been watching has hatched or the eggs rather so I'd assume you're right about yours...
