A pip appeared in the early evening and chatters were eagerly watching. Nothing seemed to be happening that night, so one by one, chatters went to bed. A few were watching. But the chick emerged covered by its shell and no one saw it until morning. A check of the video feed showed that it hatched at 12:32 am on May 9. Now there are two mouths to feed and Richie has faithfully been providing fish.
Once they have fledged, migrated and returned, ospreys have a 90% survival rate.
A pip appeared around 9pm on May 10. Chatters watched through the night but couldn't see much. Rosie was hunkered down and there were few views of the chicks and egg. In the early morning light, chatters could see the pip was larger and at 9:26 am, the chick emerged. The chicks have various nicknames but Uno, Dos and Tres seem to have been chosen as temporary names. Chick number one was born at dawn, chick number two around midnight, and chick number three late morning. It has been suggested that this be taken into consideration for permanent names.(Sunrise, MIdnight and ?) We shall see.
