First Moor hen Brood Arrives

Just noticed today that after nearly 4 weeks the moor hen eggs have hatched, there 8 eggs but cannot count how many chicks for fear of them falling out of the nest in fright if I get too close!
I had to rebuild the nest with its eggs when inadvertently I came across it when cutting down dead Thalia leaves. Quite pleased the moor hens seemed happy with my redesign and theen carried on as normal!
