Good to see 33 catching big fish. He really is a great provider.
33 has just returned with the tail which Maya takes and eats on the nest.
She is staying close to the nest

Can't be much longer until we see the first egg.
Maya was on the nest alone but has now flown
How have they got those stickc to balance on the left hand side?
In reply to patily:
Patily, I don't know but they seem to be holding :-)
Maya is back on the nest now
After another mating, 33 flew off and Maya then flew up to the campost. 33 then arrives with a couple of small sticks
33 settled on the nest now.
