As the sharpest among you will have noticed the previous Feb 16 blog should have been recorded as Feb 15. My how time flies when you don't get a Valentine's Day card lol,
On to today. For the first time that I can remember there was a long delay in the action kicking off for the early feeding. Normally the eagles come down within 5 minutes. I can't even blame it on a large crowd as there were few spectators. Whatever the reason, it took about an hour for the eagles to take the bait. Once it got going there were about 60 eagles and the display was good both in the air and on the ground.
As the feeding didn't finish until roughly 10:15 I toyed with the idea of delaying the 10:30 feeding. In the end I decided to throw out the chicken and skip the 12:30 feeding. As expected there was a delay but only about half an hour. The numbers held up and there was a particularly good ground display.
Warmer weather is expected overnight and tomorrow so I will go for the usual 8:30 and 10:30 feedings with a 12:30 possible but at the moment doubtful.
