The juveniles on all three nests are building their wing muscles with plenty of flapping and are hopping and jumping with increasing confidence, especially on Nests 1 and 2.
The Nest 1 pair appear most advanced with some quite high jumps incorporated into their routine!
By late on 15 July VP was getting ever more bouncy!
The duo have an affinity for standing on the logs which are just inside the edge of the platform. It can be tough watching for humans, especially when breezy!
The Nest 2 youngsters aren’t quite as advanced at jumping but can manage over 50 wing beats with some hops and modest jumps.
