First hatch on Nest 2!

Last night EB was quite a fidget, turning the eggs often. But they looked intact when last seen shortly before streaming stopped.

This morning was a different matter!

A short video.

EB was nudging the eggs and chick but a clear view for humans wasn’t possible for another 20 minutes.

There have been very few further glimpses of the chick at the time of writing (10.30). This is one of the best.

37 hasn’t seen the chick as far as we know. Hatching probably occurred not long before streaming began.
