During the month of June we were pretty sure that Bubs had a chick in the nest on our property.  She came for several feeds a day – up to six some days, especially towards the end of June, and rarely flew across the road, but usually flew back down into our bush after feeding. 

On Saturday, 30 June and 1/2 July another bird flew up close when Bubs came to the door for food.  It landed in the nearby plum tree but flew down the back when Bubs did. May managed to photograph it sitting in the oak tree – it has very similar markings to Bubs and we are so thrilled to be sure it is her chick.  Obviously with food being available she decided it was worth having a late baby.  Keeps us busy though.
