I had a look now and think the other eggs have hatched, maybe four chicks.

5.15 and it's dinner-time...

I can see an egg down the bottom of the nest, maybe part of a shell? Can't tell. 

It's been there for a few days. Maybe not fertile?

She sure is Rozzzie. I checked this morning while mumma is still sleeping, there seems to be a un-hatched egg.

And a little later when she has left to find breakfast there seems to be three little chicks...two heads and one hatched later and you can only see its bum-hole right at the front of the 3rd screen-shot

It's just beautiful to watch isn't it .. and a little bit addictive..

Along similar lines .. nature red in tooth and claw …. my neighbour was telling me that a blackbird crashed into one of her windows this morning and killed itself .. but one of our resident grey butcher birds was very quickly on the scene to get the fresh takeaway.  (Possible that the butcher bird had actually arranged dhte accident .. although it might have just been accident.

I think the question was about the dead bird about to be eaten for lunch

I find myself dropping in to watch this every now and then.   Quite addictive.   The three chicks are really growing now.  Dad has just been into feed them, and himself .. looked like a juvenile gull., maybe.  He's taken the rest of the carcass off with him, and the chicks are sitting there with their crops almost bursting.  Food coma soon, I think.:heart:
