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.
In reply to Karen:
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

Thanks Sandra, my visits to the forum have been a bit sporadic this season, so I obviously missed this.

You're welcome Mary Both chicks are very confident self-feeders now
13:04 Chicks lay down as distant chipping was heard
15:32 Fish from Laddie. Lassie claimed it and is feeding the chicks
Lots of thunder! No rain yet. LS is stopping/starting
16:20 Raining now but it's not putting PT5 off from eating some fish (middle)
16:33 PT5's wings
There are still huge thunder-claps in the area
16:49 Lassie on the nest, ate some (if not all) of the remainder of the fish. Chicks are too big now for her to be a mumbrella but she's giving it a good go with PT4! lol
