Fledged -finally!

The youngest chick finally fledged a week later than her big sister, this happened on Saturday 10th July. This very powerful but somewhat reluctant chick, finally made the brave jump from nest, wing stretching and flapping to taking to the air for real.
We are happy to see her go, as she was trailing behind in terms of progress compared with her sister who has surprised us all by being super early and precocious in everything that she does.
The chicks will continue to use the nest as base camp so we can still watch them at the nest but there may be times from now on when nobody is at home.
