Brilliant report and pics, Karen!
Once the LG nest had action I haven't been here much, but what an amazing camera they have this year, and so well handled!
Maya had a short break to check her feathers - I don't think she was eating the fish
There was a shower around 14.20.
33 had a spot of shut eye half an hour ago and then flew off, returning to the side of the nest where the fish
It was too tempting. He picked it up and flew off with it at 15.02 when Mya was busy checking and paddling beneath her!
He returned with the fish
and flew off, leaving the fish on the left of the nest
Maya has a spot of shut-eye, in the wind
