Full complement on Nest 4. Honestly!

The 3rd egg on Nest 4 hatched late this afternoon. The first time we saw the chick clear of the shell it was on the far side of chicks 1 and 2.

Earlier, the rear half was out of the shell.

By 16.19 it was nearly free. Press HD for best quality.

Mrs 69 was brooding solidly after the hatch. Better images of elusive chick 3 tomorrow, hopefully!
