The Nest 1A nestcam stream is down at present. Hopefully the problem can be resolved before the youngsters fledge. They have increased their exercising over the last few days, but we haven’t seen ‘helicoptering’ yet.
Amble and Acton had been the most frequent exercisers until midweek, but Ayle is now as active.
Some clips of the females follow, press HD for best quality.
Acton has often been hidden by an osprey on the front edge, but he’s been busy too.
The chicks are all taking pieces of fish for themselves. Amble has had most practice. In this clip she fends off Acton.
Yesterday, YA removed a fish after the youngsters had been fed by Mrs YA. As he flew around the area (visible top left) they requested he return it!
Let’s hope Radio and Electronics Branch can restore coverage very soon.
