The last couple of days have seen a bit of progress on Nests 1 and 2, with a few quite wobbly steps to supplement the usual round of eating, sleeping and growing. Here is a link to a video of a teeter (and a few other things) on Nest 1 yesterday! And here is a video of both sets of chicks doing not a lot, also yesterday.
Here are a few images of the early attempts to stand on both nests.
Over the last week bullying episodes have reduced markedly, but on Nest 1 there are still occasional sustained assaults despite no food shortage and submission by the victim.
Building up the nest has been a feature, with sticks and branches being brought to both nests throughout the day.
On Nest 1 most of the effort is directed at the rear of the nest where already there is a barrier – a mini garden! On Nest 2 the adults are building their nest higher and the chicks are helping out with the fine detail.
