In reply to Karen:
The cam zoomed in on the chicks resting on the nest at just after 20:35
L-R PT4, PT5
21:50 Fish from Laddie, PT5 claimed it
21:59 PT4 managed to take the fish from his brother (PT5 did eat)
22:04 Lassie waiting her turn
22:14 Lassie will have to wait a bit longer as PT4 left the fish and PT5 stepped in again
In reply to Sandra :
22:26 Lassie has now taken charge
Looks like PT5 is feeding itself.

Is this the first chick we have seen eating by itself??? Karen has any of the Manton Bay chicks been feeding themselves?
For those who check in later and may have missed it :-)
Morning ALL - thanks for all the updates and captures, also the chick feed vid Mary. And yes we are starting to see the MB chicks feed themselves.
Good morning all, Thanks for the vid Mary, PT5 first self-fed on 20th June.
11:09 Lassie found a scrap of fish on the front edge of the nest, she dragged it to the back, PT5 showed slight interest but turned away allowing Lassie to eat
