The second osprey chick to have ever hatched in southern England in 200 years came out of its shell just minutes after its nest featured live on BBC's Springwatch.<br />
<br />
One of the last segments of the first episode of last night's show focussed on three eggs laid by a female osprey bird that is part of a pioneering breeding project.<br />
<br />
Millions of people watched on tenterhooks as presenter Michaela Strachan willed the eggs to hatch while they were live on air.
