• Just looked in again and PT5 had the fish, so I scrolled back and sure enough he stole the fish from his sibling :(

    You were correct Starling! lol

    Following on from Starling's report PT4 did manage to steal it back (he's behind PT5 here)

    PT4 walked away from the fish after eating for a short while so PT5 took over again

    18:22 Laddie delivered another fish, PT4 grabbed this one

    PT5 at the back, PT4 with new fish

    18:45 Laddie in with a headless fish, PT5 grabbed

    18:53 PT4 flew off the nest

    PT5 made short work of that...

    ...then nibbled from the remainder of the other fish that PT4 had left

    He flew off

    19:16 Lassie visited and ate from the remnant of fish

    She left the nest once she had eaten but left a small portion of fish

    19:58 PT5 came to the nest and finished the fish piece

    It didn't take him long to finish and flew from the nest

    20:25 Lassie and PT4 were on the nest, she picked up any morsels she could find - PT4 did get a couple

    Lassie flew from the nest, PT4 left a few minutes after. It's been ENS since

    21:44 Lassie and her boys on the nest. PT5 flew off (I don't blame him with all the shouting PT4 is doing!)

    PT4 flew away, Lassie left a little while later

    22:07 Laddie with a fish, Lassie was hot on his tail to grab it!

    Lassie guarded the fish until PT5 came to the nest

    PT5 was still eating as the night cam came on around 22:35, Lassie was waiting patiently

    Lassie was finally able to feed from the small amount of fish that was left

    22:37 PT5 flew off

    22:40(ish) Lassie departed
