The chicks seem to be missing - The view was similar today (Jan. 30).

I think these chicks have gone to the creche.

The chicks stay in the nest for about a month at which time they form nursery groups or 'creches', while their parents hunt for food. After about 3 months (usually in January) the chicks grow their adult feathers and are able to head out on their own.
