The two chicks on Nest 3 were ringed today.
Both had fish in their crops so were ready for the weigh in! Chick 1 is a female and at 1730 grams weighed the same as the largest chick on Nest 1A did on Tuesday. Chick 1 now has a Darvic ring Blue VH.
The slightly smaller looking and younger sibling was next to be assessed; he is thought to be male and weighed 1570 grams.
The photo above shows well the looser fit of a Darvic ring on a male with their thinner tarsi.
