Amid all the excitement of the Nest 2 ringing yesterday, Nest 1 was having its own interesting moment or two. Several times during the day the youngster ventured right out onto the structure of the nest platform. From the nestcam she appears to be sitting in the air almost.
She even did some strenuous wing flapping in what looks a more precarious position than it is. Her feathers, especially the tail, are more developed than at the ringing last week. Not many more days and she’ll be off! But hopefully she will use the nest as a base for the parents to feed her for a few days after fledging.
