A sequence showing the standard process of thwacking a fidgeting fish against a branch to stun it. Previously, I've watched them then position the fish head inwards to eat it. This time, on several occasions, he positioned it head outwards then flew off in the direction of their previous nesting area. As there were two together, I guess they are off to feed young ones, which would be this year's second brood.
