May 10th: Hatching !
And so hatching begins !
We have 8 eggs now, as one has 'mysteriously disappeared' between 8-8.30am last Saturday. We do not know what has happened to it, has it got lost underneath the nest somewhere, or has the female eaten it for some reason ?
Anyway, the first egg hatched today, in the early afternoon. By the end of the day 2 chicks emerged, which leaves 6 more eggs to hatch hopefully tomorrow.
