So....I think what I saw was perhaps some of the straw/twigs around an egg looking like cracks, as I've just had a look and all eggs seen intact! I need to be more patient...

They should hatch today as itís 34 days since the eggs were laid. Fingers crossed itís not a repeat of a few years ago when none of them hatched, but she continued to sit on them for weeks

Due to a sleepless night I watched for a while and she was wriggling around and fluffing her feathers as they do wheile protecting their lot so I was sure one must have hatched but no sign yet!
Hopefully it will end well.

I think 3 have hatched. It's been a bit brutal how the 'dad' has been pecking around them!

Just looked and caught it at the right time. Definitely 3 wee heads bobbing about and 3 eggs intact!
At least they are all well. I really had my doubts after yesterday. They seem a good pairing sharing the load but I was just shocked at the dad's behaviour yesterday!
Now need to have a peek at the other nests....

Just waiting for my flight back from PP and managed to see feeding time! I hope the other eggs hatch soon as itís horrible watching the tiny ones trying to compete with their older siblings

Feeding time in Roettenbach and it looked like 5 chicks to me, before they were covered up again by mum/dad. Two larger ones, two a bit smaller and one that's quite tiny.
