One…. two, three OFF!!!

Three fledges today – so far!

First to fledge at 09.28 on Nest 1 was Blue VT, flying confidently towards the water. We couldn’t confirm until much later as she was off nestcam shot.

She returned to the nest for the first time at about 14.20. This spurred Blue UV on and he flew off at 14.30, closely followed on Nest 2 at 14.31 by Blue 8H.
