For the first time in 4 years of breeding, the Nest 3 parents have a 3rd chick to raise.
It hatched early on Sunday so at 1 day old had 2 days of rain to endure. But it it is feeding and looks healthy. Well done the parents!
A couple of images from this afternoon.
On return from downloading footage at Nest 3 it was a most welcome surprise to see chick 3 on Nest 4 sitting up. The one with its back to us.
It hasn’t eaten yet, in fact there’s not been a fish for any chick since just before 10.00. But maybe chick 3 can pull through, despite falling further behind the siblings.
