Alison Copland said:KC7 (Bob1) is Tywi (pronounced Toe-wee) and KC6 (Bob2) is Teifi (pronounced Tay-vee), if I've got it right!
Who needs Posh Pete when we've got Alison to help?!

What a strange start to the day
(Early snaps very brightened.)
Idris brought in a fish very early indeed
It was 15 minutes before Telyn came to the nest and another 15 minutes before she claimed the fish from Idris, who had been feeding himself and, I think, the chicks, "The condemned chicks ate a hearty breakfish" springs to mind
I bet these pics will come out huge but I'm not stopping to downsize them.
She only needed to feed one of them at first:
Then they swapped over in a very orderly manner!
Idris spent quite a bit of time on the nest, as per recent habit:
A lovely squirly:
Exercising, first one:
Then the other:
Post-ringing meal, both ate. I couldn't get a full pic of KC6's ring, but was a bit late restarting after the shut-down.
A contrast to this morning's squirl, this one has curls only on the end (and this one I did downsize):
A familiar sight towards the end of Ringing Day - this was during the day/night/day/night phase:
I don't know where Idris was unless that him way out there:
