33 must be in his glory when it is windy with all those broken branches lying around :-D
In reply to Karen:
Really windy here. That branch 33 had laid at the back is across the nest now.
Maya just rose to turn the eggs and was struggling with the wind whipping under her.
33 at right angles ready to shove if the chance comes!

Birdies LG DU update.
33 has got himself snuggled down again :-D
snap Mike :-D
Snap indeed Karen. What is this boy like!?
They love to sit together.
In reply to Cathy:
Missed delivery but looked in and saw 33 on the nest with Maya's supper - it is another monster of a fish !!
Maya is having difficulty picking it up - it is huge!
I wonder just how 33 manages to bring something this size out of the water - he must be very, very strong.
Eventually Maya manages to get it in her talons and flies off with it
33 settles down to incubate
33 is so attentive to Maya - what a great pair these two are.
33 was mantling for a bit, then flew off. Maya soon returned.
And 33 is now back
Beautiful light on the nest now.
