Recovering after a hectic season. Our alpha male only really managed half decent broods this year as the territory was shared with another pushy male. It was difficult to separate the females - if there were two. Some youngsters, from the first brood, created havoc by simply being around. By the end of it all about 4 youngsters and 3 adults birds are all vying for the morning's porridge. To top it all, a small fall of foreign dark-bills came late today.
He is obviously recovering, moulting away but fattening up and back to his old ways - delightful postures.
