Link to previous thread: Loch of the Lowes - May 2019
The season so far: LM12 (Laddie) arrived back 15 March and LF15 (Lassie) on 23 March. Lassie laid 3 eggs on 4, 7 and 10 April hatching 11, 12 and 16 May. Sadly on 26 May tragedy struck and the third chick died. Laddie and Lassie continue to work hard to raise their young and Laddie is once more proving to be an excellent provider bringing in plenty of fish to feed his family.

Thank You for starting all the new threads Karen.
I think Lowes webcam is down
When you bring it up it shows that it is LIVE but it is still dark, and it is daylight now. Then its the burling wheel and black screen.

In reply to Sandra :
From what I can see on scroll back, there was a whole fish delivery just before 14:00, the chicks and Lassie have had a few feeds from the same one since then
16:04 Laddie was on the nest briefly but no new fish brought in
16:25 Lassie is still tucking in but giving the occasional chipping call
17:45 Lassie has been trying to feed the over-stuffed youngsters the remainder of the fish since my last post, Only one taker this time and then both chicks went back to snoozing
18:45 Lassie fed the chicks remnants of the earlier delivered fish
19:38 After a quick comfort break, Lassie returned to brood the chicks
Lassie back to brooding a couple of minutes later. I haven't seen Laddie visit the nest since just after 16:00
21:02 Laddie delivered supper
Lassie changed her feeding position
21:18 One retreated to the middle of the nest
21:21 The other still wants more
21:25 It's had enough now and left Lassie to feed herself
21:27 The one to lie down first got up again to be fed a couple more morsels
21:33 I wonder what fish that was?
21:39 Lassie and the fish tail which she partially ate
21:41 She left the rest of it on the nest and settled to brood
21:50 Laddie arrived to the nest and picked up the remaining fish tail. It must be very tough as he's struggling to break bits from it
21:59 He finally managed to down it and then flew from the nest at 22:00
