The nest and Mrs look wet, though I don't think it's raining at the moment. She has the chicks tucked securely under her.
Plenty of food on the nest to see the chicks through todays bad weather:
Nora looks dry but still seems very windy.....where is all this non-summer-like atrocious weather coming from?
nest rocking in the wind Can't see any spare fish so hopefully chicks have had a good feed Water looks very choppy
Poor Mrs!! How undignified!
Do read today's blog and look at the video!
How undignified for poor Mrs.....showing off her frilly bloomers..........but also illustrates the hazards of strong winds
Nice feed going on at Rutland. These 2 are looking good:
Bit of a tussle going on between 5R and Mrs, he thinks what's left of the fish should be his, she's hanging on to it!
Gosh !!! Have these chicks grown since this morning?
Two chicks on one side of the nest snoozing in the sun, and Mrs on the other side looking slightly puzzled!
When I looked in a lot earlier one chick was exploring on the left of the nest and the other asleep in the middle, Now they are both snuggled up and Mrs. is pottering

These chicks are beginning to grow their feathers, they do look a nice healthy pair.
5R has just brought a large wet stick to the nest. The chicks are keeping their heads down, - they know what's best when sticks are being manoevred!
Feeding time at Manton Bay. Looks to be a small fish compared to some of 5R's offerings, but the chicks are not complaining!
Looks wet and miserable at Manton Bay this morning. Mrs is sheltering the chicks, they only just fit under her wings.
