Eagle chick hatches in Latvia

Experienced eagle couple Milda and Raimis laid three eggs in March and started incubating them.

In the middle of egg hatching, Raimis suddenly disappeared, leaving Milda fighting off other eagles and struggling for food.

Against the odds, one of Milda's chicks has hatched and she has also welcomed new male companion, Chips, to help with rearing the chick.

Ornithologists are now waiting to see if the other two eggs hatch and whether Chips stays with Milda.
