The nest is being built from March 16 until 26. Both parents can be seen.

May 3-8: Six chicks hatched

The camera was accidentally switched off in April, but on May 3, six chicks were discovered.

May 8: Death of one of the chicks

The parent has a seven minute struggle to remove one dead bird form the nest. This is not succesful.

May 9-13: Another chick dies

I don't know where the other ones went, but here we go from four to three because one dies.

May 9-13: And another chick dies

Here we go from three to two.

May 16: Leaving the nest

The only survivor leaves on May 16, at a moment when the parents were not at home.
