|Half an eggshell, and chick heard calling at 9am|
. But not yet seen!
Reports on Facebook and comments on the blog (thanks to Christine, Nikki, Luciana and Chris M) the first of our four eggs has hatched (at just before 8am this morning - Friday 10th).
We asked for screen grabs, and here are just a few you sent in. We welcome images posted to our Flickr, or emailed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Please save as jpegs -not .bmp files - and keep them 1Mb if you can.
BBC Radio Derby were first to get the news and carried a live interview about it on Ian Skye's programme at 09.05 today, with a further interview with the project team around 5pm this afternoon.
