Oh No ... another one lost!!
20:00 095 is eating when most probably 096 flies by and she starts flapping her wings
095 drags the fish round keeping possession
and then flies off with it!!
20:03 095 returns, fishless

Maya and 096 could well be feeding off the nest, keeping out of 095's way.
05:40 095 is on the nest and calling
she is on and off a few times
06:43 095 returns and calling
quickly taken by 095
33 flies off
and tucks in
07:03 095 still eating but aware of someone around
07:04 095 leaves the fish
Maya arrives and grabs it
07:04 Maya flies off with the fish
07:06 Maya returns with the fish
07:06 096 approaches and briefly lands
and 095 launches at him.
096 flies off - 095 wing flaps
07:09 096 is trying to land but 095 remains defensive - she will not let 096 on the nest!
095 takes off most likely after him!
Maya remains on the nest and eats some fish
07:07 Maya has finished and looking around
07:18 096 arrives and takes the fish from Maya
good to see him!
096 mantles over the fish
096 is unsettled - mantling and unable to eat
07:21 096 flies off with the fish
Hopefully 096 can hold on to this fish and find somewhere to eat in peace!!
LAM : - thanks very much for your account of yesterday's activity.
Delighted to see you have made it back for another visit. Interesting you write about how different it appears this year and how the family appears split - exactly my thoughts too! 095 is very dominant and personally, I cannot see 095 changing towards 096.
On a positive note to start the day you will see from my posts above that Maya has had some fish and 096 managed to get the fish but unable to eat on the nest and flew off with it. Hopefully you can find out from the team viewing off cam if 096 managed to hold on to it and find a place to eat. I hope so!
Anyway, have a great day and look forward to any news you can share later.
095 has returned and guarding the nest!
busy day but will try to look in later BFN
