In reply to Alison Copland:
Idris delivered a fish a few minutes ago. Telyn now feeding.
Some snaps from this morning so far :)
Rain-blobbed Idris with headless fish - might have been breakfish:
Don't know what Telyn was looking up at:
Idris brought a whole mullet:
But Telyn didn't turn up for it so he took it up to the perch, where he had a lot of trouble controlling it, even after he'd started eating:
(Telyn did get to feed the chicks from it later.)
Then, oh dear, due to tech issues I switched off the download monitoring and forgot to switch it back on again, I'll have gaps on all nests.

In reply to scylla:
Idris de-heading another fish:
Down to the nest:
No-one was famished, Telyn flew off leaving this much on the nest:
Idris watched his wife bring in a decent stick:
Off she flew again, Idris still idling on the perch ;)
Back with another stick!
By the time she returned with the next consignment Idris had left:
Resting after a busy spell, but still alert - standing like this, she reminds me of the Queen Mother and my Grandmother ;-*
They both look as tho they've been for a bathe - unfortunately we didn't get a zoom on them:
Off flew Telyn, returned with yet more nest material, Idris still just watching!
Idris brought this fish to the nest (the very best pic I can get of it):
28 minutes later, he brought in another, bigger:
At 19:15 Telyn was standing by the huddled-down chicks, with the weather sounding very unfriendly:
In reply to Richard G B:
Dyfi family on a very windy nest....
Thank you for the mullet info, RICHARD.
And thank you, KARIANNE, for the one and only snap for today, which is worth cicking on to enlarge I'll just have a look for major events, like fish ;)
Weather was horrible, Telyn was sheltering the chicks when this stick got blown onto them and Telyn eventually got up and replaced it on the fence:
Breakfish was a very long time coming and there was some mysterious behaviour by the parents, either both standing braced on the nest or being absent altogether, once for about 50 minutes - absent from the cam entirely, in fact :o
Post-poop flap and who was up there?
Breakfish at last, obviously headless on delivery:
More of Telyn and Idris standing on the nest for long periods, as they did before the fish:
Another stick blown out of place, this time Idris and a chick tried to sort it - I think it went over the edge:
I made it 5 hours from when Idris left the nest to when he returned with a fish - and it was a fine whole fish:
I lost track of time but it was another 2-3 hours until Idris brought the next fish, which descended in a fuzz due to failing light, but this cropped shot shows it was a flounder:
Idris eventually flew off over our heads, I didn't see him again. Telyn sheltered the chicks for the night, so far.
