Second chick arrives

As luck would have it, CR was also incubating when the second chick hatched at 9.45am on Friday 15th June. This time, he made some very strange quacking type noises, and shortly after a piece of eggshell was seen beside him indicating the arrival of chick #2.

Bella turned up some 4 hours later with some prey and immediately started to feed the new arrival who tried to take it, although mostly without any success at this stage. This will take a bit more practice.

In case you were wondering why there are so many sticks appearing on the tray, there is, believe it or not, a pigeon nest a couple of feet above them!
