Click to download Hatched eggs leave a number of egg shell fragments in the nest. From 1981 to 2003 samples have been collected from nearly all visited nests. Their thickness can then be measured by a digital micrometer. This method is an important supplement to the chemical analyses as thickness is related to load of DDT and other chemicals in the mother bird.
