Now three weeks old, the chicks are still growing at an amazing rate- due partly to the continuous supply of fish 5R has been bringing them. Over the last few days a lot of the fish he’s bought in have been a bit on the small side but this morning he made amends and bought in an enormous trout.
After eating a fair portion of it on the nearby perch he delivered it to the nest for the Manton Bay female and thier chicks.
The latest from the project team on their Three Talks, Three Peaks Challenge is that they are well on route to Loch of the Lowes after a successful first talk in Keswick. They will do the second talk at Loch of the Lowes Visitor Centre this evening before they start their first climb up Ben Nevis at about 3pm tomorrow.
