Ring numbers are 550, 551 and 552. John added that the smallest one stood up first 550. Whether smallest refers to size or age I'm not sure.
13.09 that's better! 550 looking at us, at the back
5F flew up to the campost, leaving more room to move around

The chicks are getting hungry, and calling for fish and sounding quite grown up.
Waiting for a fish
Dylan has finally arrived, with a stick! 5F landed to check his talons. Chicks are demanding fish!
There is a chick behind Dylan
Dylan took the hint and flew off, to the bottom left - fishing?
Still waiting for a fish, and it is still raining
Earlier - the Mrs G look!
Where is Dylan?
I've not noticed the pale grey eyes before
16.06 5F has returned. 550 gets in a flap

This morning our chicks were ringed. All went well, chicks safely back in the nest. Seren was back on the perch almost straight after the team got back to the top of the road.
Chicks were ringed 550, 551 and 552
Its believed that all three are male.
Due to the restrictions I never went down, just watched from the gate. So there was no photos from me. The ringer may give NRW some photos for their press release.
Someone on Chat pointed out that of the three Welsh nests where we have ringing news, six of the eight youngsters are believed male!
Edit: Ems has added "Possibly seven" and they took "DNA from them all".
Some of the above posts were posted on Loch Arkaig, in error. Thank you Sandra for pointing it out to me.
Dylan hasn't been seen since 14.10.
I imagine 5F is up on the perch.
It seems to have stopped raining, and the chicks are drying out a bit. There is intermittent calling coming from them.
17.24 FISH!! A large brown trout
