VW fledges from Nest 3

At 12.22 (and 22 secs!) VW took off from Nest 3 on her first flight.

She had been ‘helicoptering’ high earlier – and has been for a couple of days – but her take off was a much more low key affair. She flew around the area with one of the adults visible too at times.

There will be a video of some of her recent exercise and the fledge later. One more to go at Kielder, the only male. Come on, VN!
