Phew! What a day. Having waited and waited…and waited for the first chick to hatch at the Manton Bay nest, two have suddenly come along within twelve hours of each other!It’s been fascinating to watch the older of the two chicks growing visibly stronger during the day – helped by a constant suppy of (five) fish from 5R. A full report will appear on the website tomorrow. In the meantime, keep watching the webcam – or even better, visit us and see it for real at Lyndon!
Sadly there is still no news of 08(97). More on that tomorrow too. Project Officer, Tim Mackrill, will be talking about the disappearance of 08 on the BBC Radio Leicester breakfast show at 7:25 tomorrow morning. Listen live on BBC iplayer.
