Although Guillemot eggs are meant to roll in a tight circle, they can still fall off their ledge. This bird loses it's egg whilst it is preening. The egg falls to the ledge below and the adult cannot move it's egg back to the it's ledge. Imagine trying to move a tennis ball up a step with a knitting needle.
