Lunch time and we are getting bigger by the day…….
Yesterday all white and fluffy. Then today the beginnings of feathers.
The youngsters are very hot and don’t want to be smothered by their parents.
Just after 6.00 this morning Mum came off the nest for a quick flight to stretch the wings before returning a couple of minutes later.
After an awful morning of rain and wind the sun came out! So here is Dad after a quick visit to Mum to make sure she is alright. Our pair seem to be particularly caring of each other.
While one parent feeds the chicks the other shields them from the pouring rain.
A proud father watches as Mum feeds the children….they don’t get left in the cold for long ….then Dad steps in to keep them warm….but after a bite to eat herself Mum takes over again – after all she is bigger and can keep them warm more easily.
All 4 chicks being fed by Mum. She makes sure each one gets enough to eat.
4 chicks are visible and confirmed.
Breakfast in bed for everyone!
