Cally grabbed that fish very quickly from EJ!
Hmm, maybe I can grab the tail thinks Alba
And she is doing her best to keep it from Alba and eat it!!!
08.43 FISH number 1 (I think) Delivery, snatched and defended by Cally.
Please, can I have some?
Cally is doing more than ok with the head of that fish. Alba is hungry and trying to eat the tail :o(
EJ calls for fish, Cally is eating, and Alba is considering getting her own.
It's hard work - feeding yourself. Cally lets Alba have a go, EJ comes over to see if help is needed but Alba hangs on!
OK Mum, can we have some help
09.04 Cally made progress with eating the fish herself.
Morning Everyone: thanks for all your great pics and posts.
Good morning to you all.
Glad to see we have the cam working again ,well done to who fix it,surprising how much you miss the cam when it is not working.
09.06 All Change. Alba takes over from Cally. EJ offers help but it's not needed.
09.12 Alba does ok with the fish despite Cally trying to put her off.
09.35 EJ is back and takes command of the left over fish. She is feeding Alba. Cally is moving in and being fed also. It's started to rain.
Dont they behave will during feeding is this normal for ospreys at this age.
Hi Limpy. Thanks for backing me up on the blog last night :o)
Within the next few days, when they can actually eat a whole fish by themselves, (they're just practising now) the whole feeding regime will change. At the moment they need EJ to feed them and are co-operating. When they can do it themselves, it's every woman for herself! You'll see what I mean. When they have fledged, they will grab the fish and fly off with it! :o(
The feed has finished and EJ is cleaning up.
