In reply to scylla:
Everyone was late this morning - KC3 was first in with a stick:
(I'm feeling terrible about missing the pine branch arrival yesterday )
KC2 came as well, she shifted KC3's stick and poked at the pine needles, after a while they both flew off:
KC3 was nodding off between shouts - or shouting between nod-offs, I'm not sure:
KC3 brought more nest material @ 08:22 :)
See how empty-cropped he is!
08:28 KC3 flew and Heather had a look around:
ENS since KC3 flew.

Back to 05 August:
scylla said:I've been stopped in my tracks by Aran's next delivery - a flounder which KC3 went for as he landed but didn't complete the snatch... tried again a couple of times, half-heartedly, Aran kept the fish and began picking at it and in the end - 6 minutes after delivery - flew off with it!
Just in case anyone wants to see the rather long non-event:
In reply to patily:
... On chat Heather has posted that Mrs G has been fishing.
Thank you, PATILY - I had been wondering for some time
I've been stopped in my tracks by Aran's next delivery - a flounder which KC3 went for as he landed but didn't complete the snatch... tried again a couple of times, half-heartedly, Aran kept the fish and began picking at it and in the end - 6 minutes after delivery - flew off with it!
Aran hadn't finished his own breakfish Scylla, The kisds were sorted later
In reply to Cirrus:
KC2 took an interest in KC3's oak leaves and moved them:
There was an intruder alert at the time of the first fish (FLOUNDER):
Then KC3 took the fish behind the oak leaves so we couldn't get a good view of it until he flew off with it:
At noon there were 2 juvies on the perch... then one, and KC4 spotted a fish!
She got a small flounder, but grabbed poor Aran's foot first:
KC3 got the next, no long after!
KC4 soon flew and KC3 @ 13:44, corvids visited later.
Aran was nearly 20 minutes on the perch waiting for a juvie to notice that he had a fish - he ate some! But we never got a zoom the whole time.
KC4 got the fish - another big flounder:
KC4 is still eating now !!!
