Watching the female on the egg for about 20mins. She has been pecking at any flies and eating some, also tidying the nest. Now calling to the male. Interesting to watch, even after the sad news.

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

Hi, There is no automatic playback of the live stream, but it is all recorded on the web server. The chick was taken as Jackie saw. We will have some more news shortly.

Very sad indeed, nature in the raw.

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.

Now the three young goshawks have fledged and are only rarely visiting the nest we've switched over to the bird feeder at the Reptile Centre.

Let's hope the goshawks do well as they become more independent of their parents.
