Two chicks!

Great news this morning – the second chick in the Manton Bay nest has hatched. Although it is still very weak, it has already had a few tiny morsels of food, which will help it to get stronger through the day. Here’s a video of one of its first feeds this morning. As you’ll see, there is a noticeable size difference between the two chicks, but the new arrival shouldn’t take long to catch up if 5R continues with his almost constant supply of fish!

This feeding business, though, does take a bit of getting used to. I think this photo says it all…

It's easy...just turn round!
