When the nestcam fired up at 08.00 today it was clear that Blue Y0 had fledged. Yesterday she had been stoking up whilst her siblings exercised.
Yesterday she helicoptered for over 10 seconds several times, here is one of the events. Press HD for best quality.
Although YA brought a couple of fish to the nest today Y0 wasn’t tempted back during viewing hours. It rained from before noon and the shelter of a tree – she had many to choose from – has attractions in such conditions.
It is not unusual for a newly fledged osprey to delay return to the nest but obviously we look forward to seeing her on the nestcam again.
