Second chick hatched!

Today the second chick hatched, much to the delight of the visitors at Glentress Osprey Watch. When the camera first came on at 10am, the female stood up and turned the two remaining eggs and then settled back down again with the hatched chick beneath her.
At 10.30am she stood up again and revealed a second chick which had just hatched!
Both chicks are fine and healthy and the parents seem very relaxed as family life seems to be playing out in idyllic fashion so far this season.
We could very well have a third chick tomorrow but if not it will be very soon after, hopefully.
