Three well developed chicks!

In contrast to the struggle the Nest 1 chick is having, the three youngsters on Nest 2 go from strength to strength. Although there is now intermittent coverage from the nestcam streaming problems remain. Not least due to the peaty soil trying to suck in one of the microwave relays!

The three chicks are still snoozing a lot as far as nestcam viewers have seen, but jumping around the nest looks imminent.

Here are some shots of them; click to enlarge. They are really lovely looking ospreys.
