Not to be outdone, YA also brought in a very recent catch

On Nest 1 at about 09.40 the chicks were fed from the remnants of a fish. At only a few days old they are much less wobbly and uncoordinated.

There was some nestoration by both adults at times in the morning, mainly dragging sticks around, but much more exciting was a fish delivery to match 37s lunchtime offering. Almost; it looked smaller but just as newly caught!

Mrs YA ate a bit but soon went over to the gaping mouths of the begging threesome.

Late afternoon there were a few showers, but YA landed with possibly the remains of the lunchtime fish in between a couple of them and the chicks had a quick top up at about 16.30.
