An unwanted visitor

As we reported on the website, there was a great deal of excitement in Manton Bay yesterday. Here is a selection of photos of 25(10)’s visit to the bay.

25(10) landed on the perch next to the Manton Bay female and showed interest in her fish.

The Manton Bay female grew tired of 25's food-begging and flew to the nest.

    Poor old Mrs 5R. What a day. She needs 5R back to help guarding duties.

    John, Thanks for the fantastic photos! Perhaps someone up there could set up a Crow feeding station so they leave Mrs.5R alone!

    I think that’s several unwanted visitors, not just one. Incredible action pictures! Well done to the photographer concerned!
