Curlew NestCam – Hatching Chicks

Curlew parent and chicks at the nest

The curlew nest I have been monitoring has hatched. Still wading (no pun intended) through a lot of camera footage, but here’s a short video of the new family in the morning sunshine. It’s been a roller coaster ride with near misses by wandering sheep and geese almost trampling the nest, but they’ve made it this far.

ps it’s worth having the sound on so you can hear the calls between adult and chicks

pps don’t believe that temperature reading on the camera, its definitely not 12C up here at 7am in the mornings!!!
