After a very early meal this morning, 5R had already delivered a fish before Doug, our volunteer, arrived at 6am, the chicks and the Manton Bay female settled down on a windy Manton Bay nest.
It wasn’t until about 3pm this afternoon that 5R brought in their next meal. It wasn’t particularly big by his standards so we imagine he’ll be off again this evening.
Having said that there hasn’t been much food begging from the chicks or the Manton Bay female throughout the day, perhaps they’re still full from the five he delivered to them yesterday!
Here is a shot of both parents and the chicks on the nest earlier today.
