Sorry: late afternoon with dense cloud: light levels very low.
Did not want to disturb the nest too much as she (did not notice two birds: does only the female feed, or did both of them and I did not notice?) was very active arriving with food every about 2 minutes. On leaving the nest she bombed straight out - right through the boma and between all of us making supper - twice I thought she would fly into me. But approaching the nest she was very circumspect and devious coming in from different angles and using different perches - 2 or 3 each time.
