A peaceful day on the nest ending in an extended banquet; even EJ has eaten well today!
Appx 12.25am first one chick gets up and fires a laser (missed it) then the other, who positions near the lens....oh please no......but thankfully re-positions, later shaking its tail over the lens lol but to no ill effects :-)
Aaahh.....the young ones slumber in the barn...
Well, got to sleep myself now but will leave you with this clip at 12.54am when, unbelievably, one of the chicks was wide awake and started preening......but not for long lol. Night night all and peaceful watching :-))
Just a quick look in to see EJ sheltering her family from the rain as best as she can
Oh! I posted earlier but must have forgotten to click Reply :-/ I said "Thank you MIMS for starting us off with videos and snaps of nest activity" (or something like that).
Just now one of the chicks seemed to tip EJ up:
There has been a steady plink of rain but it's stopped now.

A chick emerged for a squit and is chirping sweetly.
Plink plink plink :-(
EJ's just flown.
I don't think it's raining.
Odin with FISH @ 0428hr !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's a fairly decent-sized fish by recent standards, IMO.
Lots of sweet tweeting going on :-)
EJ flies out, Odin flies in with 0428hr FISH:
Casual start to feeding of 0428hr FISH:
I'm not showing the feed, it's out to the RH side and the chicks seem to take it mainly lying down!
Here is the settling down after the feed, one of the chicks pecks at EJ's face! (I blamed #2 in the title but may correct that if someone tells me it's wrong. EDIT - and sure enough, MOFFER thinks it's #1 and I don't disagree.)
EJ pottering, she picked up bits and pieces after the feed:
EJ settled on chicks:
Morning all :o) Thanks to Mims for starting us off, and to patily and Scylla for the overnight posts and videos. Great to see that Odin has already brought a fish in. EJ flew from the nest at 05,20.
