No sightings of the chicks today

Sadly no sign of the chicks again today. Someone told me an injured chick had been seen up the road at the Nature Reserve.

I went up to investigate and saw the 2 chicks up there being fed by their parents.

Lots of aggression between the Daly mob and ours all day today probably because the chicks have been forced right to the edge of the territory. I saw little evidence our 2 chicks were even still around until Beryl arrived with a beakfull of live insects which she dropped as soon as she saw something better.

I used a lump of mince to mop up the casualties and give them back to her. Waste not etc.

The ABC Science Show on birds.

Well worth a listen
