In reply to SheilaFE:
You're welcome, Sheila. Many thanks for the chicks info!
From chat, and just to clarify ring numbers to ages of chicks -
5:54 PM - John Williams - 'smallest being 550 and largest being 552'
5:59 PM - John Williams - literally 100g between each of them in weight'
Birdie's DU Summaries 2018
Yes that's how I read it Sheila, eldest 552, #2 551 and the youngest 550 (unless they were ringed in ascending weight order?)
John confirmed on chat that Bobby Bach (#3) is 550
5F/Seren been in this position for quite a while now. No fish deliveries since webcam started up

Birdies LG DU update.
John's blog on the ringing confirms which chick, which ring , what weight and all male! He is very positive about there being an all male brood - it more or less guarantees they will return to Wales.
There was a fish delivery at 10.01
A much nicer day, at the moment, but an intruder caused 5F to intruder call briefly
Something is flying around. Dylan? AN Other bird, but not an intruder!

A lovely day here today, after the last few days. It's dry and the cloud is broken. 5F is on the nest, keeping an ever watchful eye around her, and the chicks are looking quite grown up now. standing and preening.
