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.The 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.
The chicks seem to have wider mouths each day!
