Duck versus plover

The little ringed plover being followed by Springwatch 2009 had three chicks and an egg - has it hatched yet? The three chicks can be seen there, but the nest is disturbed by some passing shelducks. The mother plover chases off the duck, despite being a fraction of its size. And a fourth chick reveals itself, though barely visible in the ground cover.
