Like Father, Like Son

Whenever we think of 5R, our thoughts automatically jump his wonderful fishing skills. He is certainly a fishing champion! The unusual location of the nest in Manton Bay has given 5R’s chicks the opportunity to watch their Father in action over the years. Whether it’s a case of nature or nurture, both chicks have recently been seen diving into the water, albeit unsuccessfully. Have a look at Tim’s recent post to see photos of 8F making a splash. 5R is still doing his duties by bringing fish to the nest and although the chicks haven’t been able to catch a meal of their own yet, they are certainly capable of keeping hold of one…even if Mum is looking for a quick bite.
