Glaslyn first 2017 chick arrives on time.

On checking this morning's footage it would appear that the egg shell cracked into two pieces at 5-29am. This is shown at the beginning of the video. The sequences that follow continued for nearly 30 minutes overall with Mrs G frequently standing and checking on the impending arrival of her new chick.

She eventually settled on the eggs and chick until Aran arrived with a small trout. Mrs G stood up and Aran had his first sighting of the newly hatched chick.

It has been the hottest afternoon of the year at Glaslyn with temperatures around 31 degrees. Mrs G both protected and shaded her new arrival form the sun while feeding some small morsels of fish.
