Sheila, 25mac posted this link to a video on the LG Facebook page
Ailie confirmed male with fish on 24 April at 18.45. A blue ring was seen.
At 20.15, on 24 April Sandra posted a fab photo of the male with a fish.
scylla posted a nice video just after that - he didn't give up the fish (unless that happened off the nest)
Early on 25 April, Ailie noticed he'd landed with a fish and MaryGK noticed he'd given it up!
And shortly after, patily noticed he'd tried to mate but it didn't look successful.
After that, fish, mating......who knows when the latter was first successful! Time will tell.......
Thanks for all that, KORKY, I had been going thru the end of last month's thread and got too addled to collate it all. I hope that helps SHEILA.
As you say, CC, she was "crouched" in the cup, I noticed that particularly at the time. Currently I'm a bit worried by Axel's shortcomings in mating technique but, as you say again, it only takes one

In reply to scylla:
She's been there since before there was any light, became slightly visible before 04:30.
That was a very nice piece of bark to sanitise the nest with:
Mistle on the nest between 5-6am but no-one since from what I've seen on scroll back.EDIT She's just landed at 8.57
FISH!!!! She's flown with it

Axel brought her another fish at 12.30 and has just flown off with the remainder

Headless fish hand off. Or talon-off. Did not see it arrive, but heard her start to chirp gently. They seem quite companiable with each other now.
They both take off. Edited to say Axel returned shortly after. And left nest right. Now ENS.
