She was moving the shell aside so it could get out. So gentle with that curved beak it was lovely to watch. Didn't see it live, I rewound to watch it.

Here's a clip of the hatch - and the second egg now has a crack!

Brilliant - I’m glad they’ve been enjoying the peace and quiet at Glaslyn!

Had to rewind also to see it, but a truly magical moment.

Good to see the two Glaslyn chicks having some lunch a minuet ago.
Then looked in on 5F and checked out earlier - A traumatic morning with the wind! Blew Dylan clean off but 5F hung in there. They've tidied up since. Is fishing difficult in this wind? (Seems Aran has caught a fish but... )

Chick hatched at Llyn Brenig! There isn't a camera on the nest but the watchers saw Blue 24 obviously feeding a chick.

No 3 has arrived. Bit of drama at start as it was on it's back for a while and the other two were in its way, but all right way up now.

Brilliant pics and truly magical to see something that’s come back so successfully. Like the sea eagle, the red squirrel and the pine marten. It gives one hope for the future!
