It's positively HUGE, Scylla!
Well done, Laddie!!!
Fabulous capture of Laddie bringing in the fish! Thanks for the vid, Scylla, I heard her shouting but was busy on the BHF BO thread at the time.
In reply to Sandra :
Even though #3 was at the back when the fish was delivered, it eased its way forward to join in with the feed
Close to the end of the feed, #3 was right at the front and still getting bites
Feed ended at around 21:02. Still plenty of fish left over
#3's head can be seen between its siblings
In reply to Glider:
Yes, that's right, Glider. NC0 was quick to grab hold of the fish and take it off from the chicks, #2 bore the brunt of it but only suffered a damp wing (26.5.22) 21:25 Laddie to the nest and took the remainder of the fish. He so deserves his supper tonight!
22:00 Laddie returned the fish
