Nest 3: a bit more on VW’s fledge

On Friday VW fledged. She had been ‘helicoptering’ well for several days so the first flight seemed slightly overdue – she is about the same age as VP on Nest 1 and VM on Nest 2.

This video gives a taste of her activity from 21 July on.play buttonOn Friday she hopped around the nest edge for several minutes until she felt ready to go. And once off she flew and flew! This image shows VW and a parent in the area around the nest. (The second osprey is a dot in the sky less than a ¼ way in from the left edge!)

Sibling VN has been recorded ‘helicoptering’ so now he has witnessed his sister fledge he may follow very soon.
