    Oh dear….. it’s not as if they’re not getting enough fish now. There has been a definite pecking order on this nest.

    I've been under the impression that the chicks grow out of it by this age

    NC0 flew off @ 05:05 this morning and hasn't yet returned !!!  She flew out to our left, couldn't see where she went after that.

  • In reply to Sandra :

    A very small fish delivery from Laddie at 15:48 - the second fish of the day as far as I can tell.

    #1 attempted to take it from NC0

    Cam zoomed in. NC0 feeding #2 (hidden behind her) in this pic

  • In reply to Sandra :

    The 3rd fish from Laddie (a small, 'live', flapping perch) just before 16:00

    The cam had remained on zoom from the last feed

  • In reply to Sandra :

    16:07 Laddie brought fish #4 to the nest (another small perch) after NC0 had finished feeding the chicks from the previous one. Mantling and chipping from both NC0 and Laddie

    Flapping from Laddie

    Chipping/alarm calling

    Laddie flew off and headed to the left.

    Chipping could be heard in the distance

    NC0 fed the chicks

    I was just checking to see how long NC0 was away - 53 minutes!  One of the chicks wasn't pleased and she nearly got some from the other one, too.  I don't know which is which but was going to say it was #1 who was nasty.

    Nothing dramatic, just a little incident
