On the morning of May 15th the first chicks started to hatch, we thought at that stage four had hatched so far, but it was hard to tell.
The final picture above shows one with an open beak. Both parents were in and out of the box feeding.
On May 16th, after very careful monitoring we counted six chicks, but we think there is still the egg present as seen above in the 06:56hrs picture. If that's so, then there were seven eggs originally.
The shots above show a rare capture of Dad helping with the feeding
