What a difference two weeks make

After all the drama of the past few weeks, it been great to have a peaceful few days at the Manton Bay nest. It’s just two weeks since we had to rescue 9F from the shoreline, but things couldn’t be more different now. 5R has shown no aggression towards his daughter for more than a week and she is getting more and more confident on the wing. Not that she’s done much flying this afternoon; 5R delivered a large trout to the nest shortly after lunch and the two chicks have taken it in turns to eat the fish. Here’s a video of 8F tucking into the fish.
