May 2009

It is now May and the chicks have hatched and are growing fast. Mum and Dad are feeding them with Dad still getting the food. Poor old Dad is having to work hard and is bringing in anything he can get hold of which includes quite a few smaller birds - this however means he gets nagged to go hunting more often. He has also learnt that it is quite a good idea to feed mum first.
