Bless her, she keeps nodding off every few seconds.

07.56, Loius arrives with a headless fish. Aila takes a (much needed) comfort break and returns for the fish. She takes it in her beak but under the circumstances we can forgive her that :) What superstars they both are. Ian
Good lad Louis....
He arrives is a wing flurry
Aila doesn't take the fish, she goes for a fly around first, leaving Louis somewhat bewildered
She arrives back
She flies off with it in her beak, it is a good size. Well Done Louis
A time check to show there is still no respite for Aila as she coories doon in the nest.
11.53, Louis comes back to give Aila a break. Ian
Aila comes back some bark & lichen. The lichen ends up on Louis' tail and as he takes off at 12.27 it ends up on the camera lense. Ian
EDIT - the lichen must be on the camera frame, it is blowing across the lense from time to time rather than sticking to it.
EDIT 2 - I think it may have blown away now.
