The chicks on Nest 1 have been ringed and a GSM/GPS tracker attached to the eldest chick.
As usual YA and Mrs YA circled the area calling to the chicks to play dead and they largely complied.
The largest chick, a female, was weighed (1780g) and measured first and BTO and Darvic rings attached. She sports Blue VY on her right leg.
The younger chick was lighter at 1550g and is also female. She has Blue VP on her right leg.
A GSM/GPS tracker was fitted to the eldest chick by Roy Dennis. Nest 1 is not in range of a mobile mast to receive the data so the first downloads will be after VY has fledged.
As the small team left the area YA and Mrs YA neared the nest to check on their chicks.
Unfortunately the nestcam hasn’t streamed for the last couple of days so we aren’t able to monitor progress closely.
