What a welcome sight this is

Oh it is getting itself round in front!
and getting fish :-D
nothing wrong with its appetite :-D
There are very little, or no sticks at the far side. I really wish they would move back from the edge!!
Meantime - Maya continues feeding all four chicks
one has had enough and turned away
Where is it putting it all ?
18:22 #4 has turned away from the fish!!
and collapses full between its siblings :-D
18:26 Feed over
and what a joyful sight it was watching the wee thing feast after its ordeal :-)
In reply to Karen:
I expect there will be plenty sticks lying around with these winds Cathy so hopefully 33 brings in a few and builds the far side up a bit. I am on tenterhooks watching them especially when #4 tries to steal the fish from its elders for if they retaliate or even push forward - just hair raising! But yes a huge relief. I'm off now to relax :-) Night ALL
