Nestcam update

The chicks are thriving at the moment, I can notice a great difference within 24 hours. Unfortunately we are down to four chicks. When I checked on Saturday night there was one lying outside the nest and was barely breathing, and was dead by morning. Strangely, this time the carcass wasn't removed, why ? I don't know; perhaps it was too big to get through the nest hole. If you look on the left hand side of the screen you may be able to make it out.


  1. I hope next time they will build a bigger nest.

  2. I hope so too as it is getting rather crowded as they grow.
