Another fledge!

Just after noon it seemed that Blue 9H on Nest 2 was going to fledge. She did a lot of flapping and jumping and helicoptered several times. But then she decided to hang onto a fish whilst flapping. Progress ceased! Blue 7H had been battered by a flailing wing a few times. She decided enough was enough and went to the top of the nest, barely in shot. At 12.19 she jumped off the nest, Blue 8H tracked her as she flew around the fell for over a minute before landing back on the nest. Or rather on top of Blue 8H!
