    13:10 Live fish from Laddie. PT4 dealt with it after almost having Laddie's foot off in the process of claiming it!

    Laddie flew off leaving the fish to flap on the nest

  • In reply to Sandra :

    Another two fish from Laddie

    14:05 PT5 and Lassie were waiting (rather noisily) on the nest

    She guarded fish after claiming it

    She fed some to PT5

    15:02 PT5 was alone on the nest when the next fish arrived. PT4 joined his sibling after Laddie left

    15:20 PT4 was eating

  • 15:53 PT4 still eating

    15:55 PT5 dozing

    15:57 PT5 woke up in time to see PT4 discard the fish

    He finished it off

  • In reply to Sandra :

    16:43 An intruder too close to the nest for Lassie's liking

    PT5 to the nest

    Lassie took off with the fish to deal with the intrusion. She returned a minute or so later to hand over the fish to a waiting PT5

    She left the nest

    Cam zoomed in

    PT5 is a beautiful osprey! (As they all are!)

    17:00 Tucking in

     

    17:03

    With the fish finished, he left the nest at 17:07

    PT5 flew from the nest

  • In reply to Sandra :

    19:43 Another fish

    Possibly PT4 (Wrong!) PT5

    20:08 PT4 left (a lighter necklace)

    20:16 PT5 finished what he wanted from the fish, PT4 took the rest of it

    20:29 Fish all gone

    20:30 Off the nest. I've noticed both juvies fly off towards the left side trees and don't appear again

    20:32 Lassie on the nest calling

  • In reply to Sandra :

    20:40 Laddie delivered a fish to Lassie

    Enjoying her supper. Looks like her family are on the dead tree in the distance?

    20:55 Lassie flew off to the left. I can't see any remaining fish on the nest
