Breakfish was delivered and served at 9:07
13:16 Fish delivery - time for lunch
13:29 The chick on the left decided it didn't want anymore...
13:30 On second thoughts
13:44 Feeding for the chicks over, Lassie concentrates on herself
13:53 One of the chicks up for some more
13:59 The other did come up for one more piece of fish but decided enough was enough. Not so this one who continued to have more
14:00 Lassie ate the fish tail and settled to brood the quite wet chicks
A great 45 minute feeding session for Lassie and both the chicks
In reply to Sandra :
15:35 Another fish delivery by Laddie, headless this time. Chicks up for a feed
15:47 LS has frozen
15:55 Cam back up
Just after 18:30, Laddie delivered the fourth fish of the day - it was huge!
Fed the chicks through her legs and to the right
She moved position
Lassie is really struggling to straddle the growing chicks now
19:10 Laddie came back to the nest, stood there for a minute or two, then flew off with the fish. Lassie shouting
Laddie and fish, left of snap, flew off over the Loch and veered left out of view
I tried to find a good snap of the enormous fish, SANDRA, but couldn't. It was half-buried in nest material on landing, then it fell into the nestcup and the next sighting was the one you've got where Lassie retrieved it.

Lassie has flown off again, she has been gone about 4 to 5 minutes. Is she away looking for Laddie to tell him to get breakfast delivered.
EDIT - She has been gone over 15 minutes now.... :-(
EDIT EDIT - She is back, wonder where she has been
