The team have now switched off the nestcam at the hobby nest. The Date with Nature is still open until 1st September at The Reptile Centre, 10am until 4.30pm.

Next season will start again around the end of March/beginning of April when we should be back on a goshawk nest.

For anyone watching at the moment. This female is giving us a beautiful image of both the outside of the wing and the underside. She is such a position, that we are getting a look at most of the outside of her left wing, but also a good look at the underside of her right wing. Not necessarily what you would expect, lots of stripes visible. I hope Carnyx Wild or New Forest Goshawks are able to grab a frame and show it on twitter.

Just seen the female swallow a small white downy feather. Does anyone know if this helps with the production of a pellet? I guess it does but would like the help from an expert.

The female is still on the nest. If anyone wants to study the feather details of this bird. Then this female is a beautiful example.

Thanks Crowman, I know the egg will not hatch, but wanted to report what was still happening at the nest. My next post was going to mention, how long before the female gave up. Sad to see but informative at the same time. Thank you for posting. I saw Tom during the week at the reptile centre. He's fine. I think he has the grandchildren this coming week for a couple of days.

A week ago today, I witnessed the chick being taken by a Goshawk. Mum is still on the nest. Thank you Carnyx Wild for being able to experience what happens in nature all the time. Not just the high points, but the low ones too.

Hi,

Following on from the sad events at the Hobby nest, we have been discussing possible options.

Although there are other Hobby nests in The New Forest, the team feel that putting a camera on another nest at this stage in the season is not practical for the following reasons:

The New Forest Hobby population will be fledging mid to late August. It will take a minimum seven days to relocate all the equipment onto a suitable nest. With only three weeks of activity on the nest from that point, it is not deemed acceptable in disturbance and welfare terms for the birds.

We are looking at other wildlife options, but as we all know most animals around The Forest have finished their breeding season.

The female Hobby at this nest may well continue to incubate the remaining egg for a while, but unfortunately it will not hatch.

A big thanks to everyone on the forums, Facebook and Twitter for their continued and active support of the project. WE WILL KEEP YOU UPDATED

Peter, Carnyx Wild

We are now live from the Hobby nest. There is just the one chick and the other two eggs will not hatch.

The low bandwidth player should be running over the next 24 hours.

We managed to get live video from the nest camera yesterday afternoon for a few hours which showed the first hatched chick and at least one egg.

We do know that the first egg hatched late Sunday afternoon and at that time there appeared to be 2 other eggs. We are not sure at this stage whether or not there is still a third egg.

There is also still an issue with the satellite link which means our coverage of the action is limited. The team will be working hard to get things running again as soon as possible.

We now have the camera on a Hobby nest. This is a new nest and female for the project. She is on three eggs which we can only guess the hatching date, sometime over the next ten days. The camera has suffered from a torrential downpour. This has left a little condensation on the lens. We are hoping this will clear given a little time.
