Dont even start me on the garden, magpies just took Two Blackbird eggs today grr!!!!!
and the cats, thinks their christmasses has come, as boards rotten above the young slow worms
Well at least it's still alive although very weak & wobbly ... third egg still not hatched, wonder if it will?She is quite clumsy I feel ... long vid from my tablet for close-up view again
I still feel it's incredibly angst-ridden to watch these first feeds so, apart from checking chick was alive, I haven't actually seen it through!

Oh dear what is this,was not there earlier.
Hoping tis shell of hatch
Yes Kate ... #3 has arrived ... these parents are really clumsy, wonder if new birds? Terrible windy conditions not helping & bright sun washed out a lot of detail ...
As you say light terrible..
see more shell, so is that now the Four hatched?
Only just realised that one of the eggs disappeared ...looking back to the two chicks hatching vid, only one unhatched egg whuch has now hatched with no more to come ... very strange, didn't this happen here last two seasons ... or do I urgently need Specsavers??
Yours on 29th April showed four..and I wondered if an egg was buried beneath chicks now,which made me say four?
Will have to see if we can see clearly at next change
Cam is jumping this morning.
Mrs was feeding what looked like Three and then left them alone for a comfort break.
