The adult female bird had been absent for long periods post fledging so it was great to see her in the area again. She moved around quite a bit in the early morning, passing by the nest site and the young birds at least once during our two hour trip. She looks a little ragged at present as she is on the process of replacing several molted primary and secondary wing feathers.

We came across the male towards the end of the trip, flying away from the nesting island towards one of his favoured perches. He appeared have delivered some food to the juveniles near the nest site.
