This morning both parents landed on the ledge at once, causing a few anxious moments as it looked as thought they might collide.
There is no third hatch (and seems less and less likely) but the two chicks are doing very well. Plenty of food coming, so much so that Diamond is still rejecting some (well starlings, anyway). We think Xavier might have brought in a rail, too, which is unusual.

And finally, Dad is also getting short turns at keeping the chicks warm, although I haven’t seen him feeding them yet (he tries, but Diamond assumes he is incompetent and takes over).
