Nest 3 update

VW, the female youngster on Nest 3, is roughly the same age as the already fledged VM on Nest 2. There will be another download of footage soon which may narrow down a fledge date, but the last download found evidence of wing flapping and jumping. Here is a video covering 14 to 19 July.

The footage also showed an intruder event on  15 July, although no osprey was seen by the nestcam.

The youngsters are keen to feed themselves – here VN gets hold of a talon instead of the trout!
