Thanks chaps. It was a Samyang 14mm f/2.8 lens. I may have cropped the photo a tiny bit.

Pretty sure the first one was dad, but the second could be either. Great footage though

I think you're exactly right Jabo.  This morning, in much better light;

 

Definitely mum here.   I've left the tripod in place now but will give it a rest for a couple of days as I don't want to disturb 'em too much.   I've also loaded kiddo's Super-Soaker with one part ammonia to fifty parts water to keep next door's moggy at bay:o

I have a similar problem here. I was washing the car the other evening when I spotted a local mog making himself comfortable amongst the begonias. So I waited til he got started as it were and then let him have it with the karcher. Must have cleared the top of the fence by a good 3 ft.

Here we go; a bit more from this morning.

After a pretty wet, windy week it appears we're down to four chicks now and after another week on a high-protein diet of creepy crawlies things are looking pretty cramped in the nest.

I think they've been hatched just over a fortnight now.  Mum also has a good look at my camera!  

When she's not feeding them she's spent a great deal of time trying to see off a pair of big, clumsy love struck Pigeons that have tried to set up home next door.

Looks like the shows over for now.

Had a bit of a heavy night with friends yesterday and when I came down to get the coffee on this morning there was just one chick in the nest.

I then had to go and launch a Dreadnought.

When I returned the nest was empty.  Went and sat in the lower part of the garden and found mum feeding one of her chicks in a nearby tree.

Adios!:salute:
