    Comments: Pair with 3 noisy juveniles. Pair seen mating several times and occasionally driving juveniles off, probably starting to push them into independence in preparation for next brood. Adult female caught a large rat and resisted pleas from juveniles for some time even mantling when her mate approached, juveniles persistent though and eventually forced her to drop her meal. All birds rested as a loose group for a while then headed out to hunt again with the juveniles practicing their hovering and pouncing.
