    20:34 Another dive! Unsuccessful this time. 


    She took her usual route back to the nest but then reappeared flying over the Loch and back to the birch

    20:45 Laddie to the nest with a fish. NC0 in hot pursuit!

    He flew past the back of the nest. NC0 had already began her flight 

    She landed just prior to Laddie

    LR2 did eventually join his sister and NC0 but didn't appear to eat this time around

    21:41 NC0 continues to feed LR1 after LR2 had decided he'd had enough

    So what could be more fitting than an unsuccessful video?  First, I now realise I didn't start early enough to capture NC0's catch. Then, I cropped the first few dives but it didn't "take" because I saved it with the uncropped parts attached.  Oh well, crops always looks so fuzzy anyway...
