After yesterday's excitement, just a brief update. The first three pictures were all taken at about 9.30am.
|This was the state of Box1. As you can see, there are still lots of eggs to hatch and only three chicks visible.|
|Box2 now has at least 6 chicks. As these chicks started hatching out on 1st May, four days ago, if there are any unhatched eggs, then I expect them to stay that way.|
|Box3 is not quite so clear. This looks like 6 chicks to me and I think I can see at least three eggs. However, as they only started hatching yesterday, some of the remaining eggs may still contain viable chicks.|
finish, here are a couple of pictures of Will feeding Zoe in Box3. I
hope nothing upsets the sideways mounted camera in this box as this year it
promises to produce some excellent pictures.
We have already caught a glimpse or two of the chicks straining up for food. When they are a bit bigger I expect them to be clearly visible from the side.
|The same view from the top. Not quite the same impact!|
