Many thanks, Tiger, as always - what would I do without you?
Learning more every day about the bird heaven I live in.
Youngster on the nest shouting for breakfast
And by the looks of the live camera he/shes got it and tucking in!.

Tiger's index threads
I muMUst have looked in seconds after CIRRUS posted and saw juv defending the nest, so assumed an intruder Didn't realise at that point that it was defending its brealfast too
By the time I had captured and saved a pic there was an adult on nest with large fish, mantling over it. Eventually. adult and juv started eating but now just juv eating and adult protecting fish...or just not hungry......and now its flown, with the fish
Not long back from Manton Bay and I can report that all 4 are still there and had plenty of fish this morning so much so that there was no food begging whatsoever. Some pics to follow:
The 2 juveniles in the poplars behind the nest:
Mrs 5R with a fish and the 2 juveniles together:

Truely loely pictures ALAN I especially like the one of the brother and sister in the tree. May I save it to my album, please?
Did you notice that I have sent you a PM?
Patily : Of course you can save it to your album. I did not get your PM. I lost my login at the weekend and had to create a new account with a slightly different layout to my name. You have probably sent the PM to the one I cant acess.
Any idea how I can "talk" to you privately?
Oh ALAN - utterly delightful pictures . Like Patily, I do really like the one of brother and sister on the same perch.
9F has a day out. Must have been after I left as she was there all morning.
Adult on nest, and a juv eating fish
Looks like both adults on the nest at the moment.
Accountants of the world unite!
Haven't seen both adults on nest together for ages Perhaps they are spending some time together before Mrs goes!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think its 5R who has just flown off
