Coming along well

The weather has been on the cool side for June and a bit breezy until today but the Nest 1 and 2 males have caught enough fish for their chicks – and the females – and the females have brooded rather large youngsters when needed. Here is a video of a couple of fish arriving at the nests on 18 June.video stillThe chicks develop each day. Here is a short video of a chick on Nest 2 flapping its wings yesterday.

None could walk by the end of yesterday although practice was curtailed by buffeting winds.

Shortly before the Nest 1 stream stopped at 19.00 yesterday YA brought a new catch to the nest.

    My, how fast the chicks are growing, the parent birds are certainly looking after them well. What a pleasure to see the chicks are now active. Many thanks Joanna for the recent blogs and videos. I must view more frequently than of late. Great to see that YA and Yellow 37 are each delivering fish regularly to feed their family. Good to see them in action! :)

      I know how busy you are at Glaslyn, Viv, thanks for checking in to see “your” sons. They are excellent fathers. Looking forward to their mother’s eggs hatching very soon!
