Dad stopped in long enough to land, flap his wings once and fly off again. All Mom did was turn around to look at him as she remained on the eggs.

No idea if this is Mom or Dad on the nest with head partially hidden behind the raindrops on the camera lens.
Currently it's still raining, 7C, and wind gusts to 35km/h

Dad visited the nest somewhere around 10:00am but didn't stay long. Mom has spent all morning with her head tucked down enduring the rain. A little after 1:00pm Dad returned. No fish. He stood around the back of the nest for a few minutes and Mom decided to take a break and flew off.

Dad moved in to egg sit and settled down

Well, I missed a nest exchange at some time since noon. Dad just landed on the nest. Mom did not move. Dad poked around at the sticks and then took off for parts unknown

Dad - departing

Just as I posted this, Dad returned with some clumpy dark thing to add to the nest.

Dad landed on the nest with a very small fish in talon. Mom got up and took it.

She flew off with it to eat elsewhere. She was only gone about 2 minutes - it was a small fish!! Green LOL
