Eating and manners have featured in several recent posts. Here’s another!
Saturday afternoon was particularly wet at Kielder. Fishing would have been very difficult with the rain obscuring the view below the surface of the water for the hunting ospreys. Also the fish would be deeper. White YA made a good catch which he dropped off at Nest 1 soon after 14.00 but nothing went into Nest 2 until 16.51, and the previous fish was eaten by around noon.
So 37’s arrival with a rainbow trout was greeted enthusiastically! A video of what happened is here.
Blue 8H tried to relieve his sister of the meal.
Blue 7H joined in the fray but Blue 8H won. After a few minutes Blue 7H tried again, only to get a peck.
Later in the day 37 excelled, bringing in two trout within 90 minutes. Feeding became more mannerly.
Blue 7H ate the whole fish in the photo above within 45 minutes.
