Good morning all, Thanks for the vid Mary, PT5 first self-fed on 20th June.
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
