In reply to see gull:
Missed that one SG, unfortunately had to go out!
Chicks being fed earlier today (a video by Doggie which I post with his permission)
Female here acting very strange still with regards food ... Dad just brought prey & she was extremely reluctant to get off the two chicks & two eggs,he carried on eating & at one stage fed some to her, she got off & back on the chicks three times in total & he flew away with the prey! She watched him go & then settled back on her family ... is this known behaviour at this stage in hatching process?
