Osprey chicks hatch

Two chicks have hatched in an osprey nest in Gwynedd. They're thought to be the first to hatch in Britain this year. The parents returned to Glaslyn, near Porthmadog, in March, after spending winter in Africa.

Local volunteers help to protect the birds from the potential threat of egg collectors. There is a third egg which hasn't yet hatched.
