055 continues to tuck in. I just hope he doesn't fly off with it that the others get some too.
Meanwhile, someone flew by catching their attention
Landed on the cam post - I wonder if it is the missing juvie, 054?
What a tussle over that fish!!
057 moves in on 055 to steal
055 warns her off but 057 steals it
057 has the fish but 056 wants it!
and so the tug of fish begins
neither will let go
and so it goes on until 057 lets go
056 turns and guards the fish
056 gets tucked in
Video: Fish Tussle btw 056 and 057
056 continues to tuck in - these juvies are hungry. 057 is waiting!
057 now moves in on 056, facing him up, to take the fish
057 grabs it
success - 057 drags the fish away from 056
057 now gets a hold and ready to get tucked in
054 has appeared. The whole MB family is still here
054 lands as 056 wipes his beak and 057 makes a start on the fish
056 flies off and 057 holds on to the fish
054 waits patiently while 057 continues tucking in
054 after 20 mins, makes a move towards the fish but 057 warns her off and continues eating
057 still tucking in while 054 waits.
057 now finished and 054 approaches
054 gets hold of the fish
drags it over
054 now gets tucked in as 057 wipes her beak
057 has now flown leaving 054 to enjoy her fish

and then flies off with it
leaving 054 and 055
