This one spent quite a while sat on top of the bird table before it ventured down to the paved area where I had scattered some seed and fat treats.

I wonder if the round patch behind the eye is where the ear is.
There are three parts to the video:
1) A juvenile sat in a tree flapping and calling to be fed. No luck there!
2) It tucks in to fat treats but has problems trying to pick up more than one at a time as the first piece is holding its beak open.
3) First one, then two juveniles at the ground feeder.
Fascinating the way some birds put their heads right on one side to pick up food.
Later in the day I spotted a Heron way up in the sky weaving around all over the place. It was being harassed by two crows who were chasing it. Unfortunately I didn't manage to get the Crows in shot. Eventually it flew far enough away for the Crows to be satisfied and return to their own patch.
