the parent left the nest and sat on the ledge for a few minutes, before flying off,
only to return a few ninutes late to settle down on the chicks again :)

it looks a bit chilly and breezy on that ledge this morning, judging by the way the birds feathers are blowing up on its back !
and she is sheltering the chicks from the wind,

the parent bird was looking a bit bedraggled this morning ! and it was not until i moved to camera 1 that i realized it must have been raining quite heavily. judging by the puddles on the ledge ! ( its nor rained here, and we are not a million miles away :roll: )

the chicks have grown so much the parent bird is having trouble covering them all :)
