Chick 3 for Nest 6 but no fish for hours

Chick 3 hatched about 18.45 today. It is probably the chick by the shell in the clip that follows. Press HD for best quality.

The two chicks that hatched today don’t need food immediately, which is just as well. W6 disappeared from camera view before noon and returned 5 hours later with a stick. Mrs W6 was not pleased, and off he went. Not seen since.

Chicks 1 and 2 were begging hard at 18.00. Chick 1’s last meal was at 08.45 today.

the chicks still beg strongly

In hot weather hydration as well as food is important. Hopefully W6 has returned by now and the chicks are tucking in.

    Thank you Joanna, delighted the chicks have hatched, but a teeny weeny bit worried no fish! Hope you have some good news for us soon.

      Me too, Starling. The nestcams stream locally from 08.00-19.00 but they won’t be checked until later tomorrow morning, so no news until after that.
