First egg hatched at Glaslyn at 9.49 am this morning, and we watched it happen for once

Mrs G moved the empty shell out of the way and is now snuggled down on all three chicks but giving the new hatchling space to dry off.

Mrs G moved again and it looks as though the chick is sitting in the smaller piece of eggshell. Hope it isn't stuck to the shell. :shock:

It's clear of the shell and is between its' siblings who are now being fed by Mrs G, Aran having brought a fish to the nest.

Without going through 12 pages, could anyone tell me where to find the link to see the Osprey's please? I sawSpring Watch last night and it showed some on there, too. Fabulous birds.

http://www.glaslynwildlife.co.uk/live/? ... dium=email

the other two nest sites I watch are http://www.dyfiospreyproject.com/ and http://www.ospreys.org.uk/webcam/

There are others around the country. Be warned - it can be addictive!

The Rutland ospreys returned very early and the chicks hatched at the beginning of May. The Glaslyn chicks are only a few days old and none of the chicks have hatched at Dyfi yet - but any day now!

Well done on seeing live Margaid, we managed to see the 2nd chick hatch live.
It's very addictive Tweetypie, you have been warned, you can also look up Rutland Ospreys, Kielder Ospreys, Loch Garten they all have live webcams.
Nice to see the Glaslyn Ospreys briefly on "Iolo's Snowdonia" on BBC 4 last night, super series

First time BYM.
There was an intruder at lunchtime today and Aran was off the nest seeing them off. Couldn't see what it was but apparently was another osprey, not a corvid after the chicks. Poor Mrs G is now huddled low over the chicks keeping them dry.
