Chick number two!

At 00:22 we got the first glimpse of chick number two in the nest!

A hole in the egg was noticed yesterday at 14:01 although it did not appear to get any bigger for many hours. However, at 23:55 the female stood up to reveal that the egg now had a crack running around it.  When she stood up at 00:22 we could just about make out chick one on the left and chick two on the right and soon after got the following photo.
