05:42 - Lost some of Blue33's dear head in order to exclude the darn logo:
I was begging Maya to be more careful - but to no avail:
Next episode to follow, I'll have to do more editing on that so it'll be a while.

I am beginning to dread 33 delivering the first fish!!
08:24 33 arrives, takes the fish and flies off with it
Maya once more covers the chicks

Hi and bye, KAREN!

I had good intentions but got overtaken by events - so this is the second, longer feed - unedited. All were up for it and I think the collapser only collapsed due to fullness, but maybe you (whoever) will check:
Another unedited feed, 11:20 this time:
14:03 Another feed from the last of this morning's fish
14:57 33 arrives with another fish - its still living!!
Maya soon tearing into it and feeds herself and the chicks while 33 stands by
16:27 Maya fixes the railings!! as 33 returns with the fish.
16:28 Maya takes the fish and another feed gets underway
Maya dishes the fish out making sure each chick gets fish:-)
When I looked in the babes were in a row, sparked out but it was clear there had just been a feed and Maya was stilll clutching the fish Every time one of the 3 wobbled their heads up they received another bit of fish At last Maya is ssatisfied that she has fully stuffed them so is now brooding
17:52 33 arrives with a large stick!!
33 tramples across the nest
33 keeps placing the stick while Maya settles back down on the chicks
think he is pleased with his work now :-D
