In reply to patily:
Aran was on the side perch:
Got zoomed on - this was terrible, too many beautiful faces to choose from and lots more catching up to do ;)
The fish looked so puny when Aran flew in with it and MrsG seemed to take such a short time finishing it after he gave it to her... but on close inspection it wasn't too bad at all:
And what happened was that she ate hardly any and brought it back to the nest, whereupon Aran grabbed it, mantled over it and wired into it (as MARY would say) and then flew "miles away" with it.
Later MrsG got a small whole fish:
Can't do any more - it's long gone get-go time the next morning !!!

Fabulous captures, Scylla.
No ospreys, but it is Glaslyn - I have just come across the news of a peregrine which was found dead near the VC. Dreadful news, and what a shock to those who found it.

Aran flew to the nest cup where Mrs G was waiting. A swift changeover, and both flew off, only to both return to the perch! Sweet!
