The two chicks on Nest 3 are now over four weeks old and are looking in good shape. Despite the limited coverage they are often eating. Although there are frequent feeds there is the occasional snatching attempt!
They are preening more as their adult feathers grow.
The male and female share the feeding duty.
Although most of the clips show sleeping, eating or preening chicks there are occasions when chick 1 shows who is boss. Chick 2 had reared itself first, though!
There was no evidence of an intruder on 20 June when UV spent the day in Kielder Forest but on 22 June an osprey flew around the area for a few minutes. It was never really close to the nest. In this image it is just above the trees at the rear of the clear fell.
Here is a video of the developing chicks.
