In reply to Mike:
There is an intruder around. 33 is shouting and mantling, Maya is standing on the nest and the two chicks are flat.
33 has flown off leaving Maya to watch over the chicks.
Maya is now eating but neither chick is remotely interested.
I looked back to see that one chick is now being fed....they do it deliberately!!

33 has just flown off leaving Maya with the chicks one of which is feeding itself from the left over fish.
