Operation hatch: First chick

This little Ixworth made it out first and was cheeping at us when we came down this morning. Many of his siblings have made various cracks and holes in their shells, each chipping away with their egg tooth to break out and join their big sister or brother (we can’t sex them for a while). He keeps dashing about, tumbling over the rest of then clutch and then collapsing with exhaustion. Gorgeous.
