:wave:

Thanks to Nancy and Macko for early morning news and to jopie and others for later news and pics :2thumbsup:

Had time for watching now and then for some periods
10.38 feeding (Piret). Madis came upstairs – perhaps watching for learning how to do. They all seemed not to be very hungry – and they also got what wanted. After some minuts Piret stopped feeding and made some nestarrangements, but then she began to feed again – again all tree got as wanted. And 10.57 settled on chicks again.
11.45 Piret finds a piece of fish in nest, feeding again. Although well feeded they all got and especially chick 3 who seemed to have most appétit at that time.
12.18 Piret rearranged sticks in nest
12.28 empty nest, but then Madis arrived. He found a piece of fish in the back of nest, began to eat, but did also offer food to the chicks. And when chick 1 came closer to seek his shadow he misunderstood and really did an effort to get the chick taking what he offered, but in vain – the chick layed down just to sleep, then finally Madis gave up.
12.33 Piret came to nest with a stick, placed herself in front of cam. so difficult to see what happened behind her, but Madis probably did eat the rest of the fish, and it also seemed by his moving that he now and then did offer morsels to chicks.
12.39 Madis flew
13.27 Madis came to nest without fish and flew the minut after again
14.05 Madis arrived with fish, pretty large. Piret started feeding immediately and chick 3 in front got the first bites
14.22 Piret on nestrim preening, 3 well feed chicks sleep.

16.15

Could it be she choose this size of branch on purpose, so she could stand and sleep on
it and create a shadow at the same time?

Then it would be even better if she puts it on the left side.

Thanks to all for reports and pics,video. :thumbs:
Seems all chicks are getting fed.That's a relief. Ospreys (maybe all birds ?) feed the young when they raise their heads and open the beak. Only then. If they are too weak,or if the other chicks stop them getting upright...that chick misses the feeding.

17:26 Feeding ongoing again by Piret. Only two are upright and begging for food.
Third chicck is a bit squashed between the two.

17:34 Third chich has now managed to turn around and is now getting bites too.
17:38 Third chick has had a good few bites,is asking for more.
17:37-17:41 Piret has ended feeing,looking around fro ? Madis with another fish ?
Piret should now be sheltering the chicks from the sun. :rolleyes: She is still standing and has started preening herself.

17:45 Chicks lay all flat out,fed and probably hot too. :thumbs:

17:48 Piret inspects the chicks waiting to see if they need any feeding.

18:11 Piret returned after a few minutes away and now Madis has arrived with a fish. The chicks seem sleepy and not very hungry, so Madis is eating a few bites himself.

18:15 Madis flies away, taking the fish with him.
