Looking again at the cam, I realise that the fish hasn't shrunk much, despite MrsG's constant attention - it must be rather tough!

Thinking of you
I wonder if this is the same 'orrible piece of skin I lost track of yesterday? No, I think MrsG ate that *yuk*.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
SCYLLA - I hope this morning finds you seeing some improvement, and that you are feeling a bit better.
There is a feed going on right now - a quick look back but couldn't pin point any delivery of said fish!

In reply to patily:
I'll do a catchup later - in the meantime a lovely sight - Aran with a piece of fish, he's looking distinctly stately :-* No MrsG on the nest, the chicks are all "resting".
Well he was looking stately, but I was too slow to capture the moment. I hope you appreciate that the above is a live snap !!!
CATCHUP from early this morning.
The chicks were up and about this morning well before MrsG arrived on the nest.
Aran brought a flounder - no time (cos I'm doing it from quicker/easier download rather than screen capture) but as you can see it was before cam changeover, so it was nice 'n early. Only one chick was interested in eating, however, and I think that was KC4 but not positive.
Things pottered along, with MrsG on 'n off the nest and nothing much happening, until Aran brought the second fish, a headless nearly-whopper:
They were all up for this one (Aran is on the perch at this time):
When his family had had enough - and it didn't take much - Aran came and ate on the nest:
He left this much and MrsG got on with feeding:
KC2 plucked out a downy feather:
There's been quite a lot of wingercising going on, one chick managed to get its feet off the ground by standing on a clump ;)
At the moment there is vigorous reaction to an intruder, I'll check it when the episode is over, if I'm still active ;) Otherwise, later :)
