Link to previous thread: Loch of the Lowes - June 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. The remaining two chicks were ringed on 26 June as follows: #1 Blue PT4 (M) and #2 Blue PT5 (M).

Considering the size of that nest, these two are filling it up nicely.

Good morning all, thank you for pics & posts.
I have just had scroll back to see if any fish have been delivered, and breakfish arrived approx 05.15.
Laddie arrives with fish.
Closely followed by Lassie
Lassie grabs the fish
One of the chicks attempts to take the fish, however Lassie has decided to feed them herself.

From scroll back again.
Another fish delivered approx 07.30
Pretty much the same sequence of events as above.
Lassie grabs fish
Then begins the feed
Laddie has been to the nest on 2 other occasions, but he had no fish.
That is all the action I have found from scroll back.
I would have put a capture from real time, but the cam is playing up just now, and I have to go.
It would have been PT4 & PT5 relaxing on the nest
Many thanks Karen for the new thread and for everyone's captures and posts this morning
11:45 PT5 (right) was self feeding from a piece of fish already on the nest
11:50 PT4 (front) decided to eat too
In reply to Sandra :
Intruder overhead, Lassie flapping
She gave chase, lots of distant chipping
12:09 Lassie returned to the nest, all appears calm now
At 13:40(ish), Laddie provided another fish for his family
