LOCH ARKAIG (The Woodland Trust) - AUGUST 2019

  • Up to 14.00 today, It looks like there has only been one fish delivery. This was at 12.15, a nice whole fish which Mallie (as the only juvenile on the nest) took without any fuss. Louis managed to make the delivery & depart unscathed. Prior to that the youngsters had shared the two fish parts which were lying from Monday, Rannoch being first on the nest got the larger chunk.

    I'm doing catchup but dilly-dallying so you gazumped me.

    Mallie finished first, did some flap-prancng and flew, Rannoch left not long after:

    Fishes left on nest:

    No further visits before nightcam:

    It rained a lot overnight:

    Rannoch was first in and claimed Mallie's bigger leftover:

    Surely Mallie must be a boy:

    S/he had to make do with Rannoch's leftover:

    Mallie flew with fish:

    Then Rannoch:

    But she returned to eat on the nest:

    Mallie came and wanted some but Rannoch ate the lot and they were both gone by 06:09:

    A juvie zipped on 'n off the nest, shortly followed by an LBJ which I'm sure you can ID, then by a Robin.  I put the liddle birds on FF and that was bad judgement but I didn't feel I had time to edit... but it would have been quicker in the end :-/
