Ample food – even for a weighty threesome like the Nest 2 chicks – hasn’t stopped some fierce competition on occasion. And yesterday Blue 7H had a firm grip on her mother’s wing for no apparent reason!
If only one fledgling is on the nest when 37 flies in then there isn’t a problem.
But it is a different kettle of fish (sorry!) if two or all three of the young are present.
If Mrs 37 is present she keeps well out of the way!
Apart from feeding frenzies, the most notable events on Nest 2 have been a number of intrusions and Blue 8H flying away with a fish, good progress by her.
