In reply to LAM:
No LAM, sufference didn't come across at all :-) I mentioned the weather as I suspected the conditions would contribute to difficulty locating and identifying the birds as they would be sheltering. And yes, we can only hope things improve!
Meanwhile on the nest 095 continues to call
c - LRWT
13:48 33 arrived at the nest with a stick - definitely not what 095 expected or wanted!

33 dropped the stick and immediately flew off
14:04 After 095 had flown off, Maya arrived with some nesting material
Maya flew off
095 continues to call
I wonder if 33 and Maya wish to start rebuilding their nest and are now trying to encourage 095 off the nest??
Thanks LAM - yes Maya could have wanted some peace to eat and I suppose if they are calling, it would be against her instinct not to feed her young first as we are used to seeing them eat and Maya come and pick up the fish when they are finished and hence her holding the fish so long. It really is an awkward situation - if only 095 would calm down and share the fish with 096!!
