I know - just looked and mum is having a bit of a tidy up. Goodness knows how they will all fit it there - if they all survive

I've been checking on them every day but the last few days I cannot acess the webcam - the screen has a message across the top starting with 'fatal error' - so annoying

I’ve been watching everyday so that’s great news that 4 eggs have hatched.
Just looked and can’t see any chicks as mum is keeping them warm but I can see what looks like a glove in the nest! Must be an optical illusion though and I’m sure it’s a fish

5 became 4 within days but the 4 have thrived and were growing rapidly so I was sad to see this morning that there is now only 3!

I wonder if it fell out of the nest? Or could something large like a heron have got it?

Update: I’ve just googled it and sometimes the weakest is killed and eaten by the parent if food is in short supply. I wish I hadn’t watched the video!

Ooh! Thats strange because when I last looked there seemed to be something that looked like a dead "something" (half pecked and eaten) in the nest and I thought it looked a bit chick shaped. Didn't really believe it could be one of them though

Nature is both wonderful and very cruel sometimes

Strange though as all the chicks looked a similar size and healthy. I wonder if the 5th chick went the same way a couple of days after they were born? Maybe a case of too many mouths to feed!
