I’ve just got in from our tree-planting and notice a bird pinching a small lump of prey from a very relaxed Diamond, who was feeding her chicks, but this didn’t look like Xavier, or even like a male, unless my eyes are starting to play up, as he/she seems to be the same size.
This was actually on Thursday 13th at 1632 ish. Now Xavier is taller than Bula, I admit, but this does seem to be a big bird. When it was sitting on the ledge, I was sure it was a female! Pity the light inside the box is so bad. But I can’t believe she would let a strange bird near her chicks, so I must be wrong. And seems typical of X.
Did anyone else notice anything odd?
