Hatching - Any moment now

A changeover this morning  at 08:45am  revealed a clear pip in one of the four eggs,  and over the microphone on Webcam Page 1 a faint squealing sound of one of the unhatched chicked can clearly be heard.
Changeover at 08:45am 

So,  today looks highly likely to see our eggs hatching. Keep on watching...!

Thanks Nick
Can certainly see pip and as you say hear chirrups.

11:46 it's happening!!! Lots of clear loud cheeping, mama stood up and there's a lot of white fluff poking out of one of the eggs. :)

11:51 whole chick out now, mama eating the shell.

Best shot I could get in my amateur capacity. More cheeping from inside at least one other egg is also going on. :) http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v521/silverbucket/chicky.jpg

Changeover at exactly 12pm, dad ate a bit of shell too. Below are shots of both parent birds with their baby. :) (Apologies for the Photobucket links, I don't know how to use Flickr).

The male keeps making an alarm call, is that normal at hatching time?
