SR stayed mantled over the fish and Dad arrived, stayed for a moment and then flew off again.
Middy accidentally hit him in the head with a wing just as he had landed.

Morning Judy

Since I logged in at 9:30 nest time - the stream has only frozen twice.

But I did catch a big FIsh Fight between Jr and Sr over that big fish. Here are some images of the fight

The start when Sr poked her beak in to try to grab the fish

It was Dad that arrived on the nest at 10:03. He was just standing there, perhaps looking at Middy's fish or talking to her about it. What ever, Middy turned and squawked at him and then attacked him. The wing hitting him was no accident. Dad stayed where he was for a few more seconds and then flew off

Stream has frozen two more times while I was typing this. Not sure how much of a record I will capture as it seems to get worse at mid day.

Finally at 11:40 under the constant glare of the LA she walked away from the fish and then flew off. THe LA grabbed it and began eating
