MANTON BAY - JUNE 2018

  • Hi MIKE Sending you a PM

  • Feed under way. Looks like only #2 is interested.

  • 33 has just arrived with another green branch. (Arrowed) He decided to move the other larger one and now Maya is helping.

  • Maya was tugging with the stick sticking up on the left but it seems pretty much stuck in place Chicks awake and preening

  • Maya tugging and placing sticks again andtrod back on the chicks and woke them up She has flown but only as far as the cam post I think, by the wobble

  • Chicks snoozing in the morning sun.

  • Both adults in to defend against an intruder.

    33 flew off in pursuit but Maya is still a bit agitated.

  • Seems to be windy everywhere this morning  Maya buffered as she stands over the GEMS who are asleep

  • Hi Patily, I'm following you on your round up of the sites.

  • Feed taking place. The chicks are as big as Maya now.

  • Looking at them prancing about the nest this evening it can't be long until they get ringed

  • Richard. I think you may have been close to the mark!

    The camera is down with a legend saying 'cannot access-check network set up'. Not a common/usual message.

    The time of day and the age of the chicks suggests that they may well be ringing.

  • Camera is back up. Chicks flat on the nest...….?????

  • One chick up and I can see a blue ring.

    Wide angle camera cleaned and working.

  • Second chick now wandering about displaying Bling!
