What will happen to the unhatched eggs?
Another question about the fate of this year's nest:

Just out of curiosity, what will happen to the unhatched eggs? Will Pale Male and Lola eventually consume them?
No. After the pair finally abandons the nest the eggs will probably be found by gulls or jays, who will break them and eat what's inside. By the time PM and Lola are ready to nest again next February or so, the nest should be ready for new eggs.
PS Perhaps John Blakeman will have more to add on this subject
