Both chicks have finally stepped up onto the ledge, so they can properly survey their domain. The size difference is now quite noticeable (although less than last year).
Here is a nice shot of Budhin with Diamond on the ledge.

And here the chicks are playing around either on or very close (too close??) to the ledge, while waiting for their supper.
Prey has included some interesting and unusual items recently, including a masked woodswallow and a shining bronze-cuckoo. Several wattlebirds have also met their match.
Their antics on the ledge have been a little heart-stopping at times!
Thank you Cilla for these update. The chicks are doing really well. Tina
It’s sad. I’ve been busy house hunting and then moving house. I’ve missed most of this season. Now I have time to watch them I feel like I’ve not bonded. But they look like cheeky little mites just the same!
Probably best not to bond now as they’ll be off soon! But I usually am able to follow them in the field for a month or so, so keep watching out for updates.
