Space invasion! There were 2 of them at it:
Padarn couldn't keep her eyes open any longer:
Saturday 3rd September
Around 06.25, 7B1 flies down from the perch to the nest and retrieves the flounder left from yesterday.
7B1 then takes it “upstairs” to eat
07.29 Idris flies onto the nest with a fresh fish. 7B1 is fish calling from the perch
Idris briefly lands then sets off again with the fish, 7B1 still calling
Then all is quiet. 7B1 carries on eating. EDIT - 7B1/Padarn

I didn't work out the time and I didn't realise it was yesterday's flounder!
Padarn fleeing the unseen Magpie mobbers:
I was about to do Idris's arrival but as you've done it already, I'll take a break...
Padarn didn't like the odd flounder and was looking for a new one...
...and Idris delivered fresh fish
FB1 didn't grab the offer and Idris took off to the nest perch
Pardan accepted Idris' 2nd offer at least, mission accomplished

I didn't see this delivered, she flew in with it - she ate it on the left of the crossbar and on another perch.
There were 2 birds chasing each other in the sky, Padarn was not involved, she was interested, tho, from her perch.
In reply to scylla:
Having spent the night on the perch - pre-dawn crop-drop and poop:
When I last checked a couple of minutes ago, Padarn was screaming her head off on the nest.
Breakfish didn't look impressive:
Turned out it was a flounder:
I think this must have been another Flounder:
Idris soon got himself a whopper - I hope this snap posts nice'n big, as I really like this view of him - he was watchful:
He ate some and then I think he gave it to Padarn, and she was watchful too:
Late evening Idris brought another flounder to the nest but Padarn didn't budge from the cross-perch so he flew off with it. Padarn retired to the overnight perch.
