Another departure?

It’s now been over a week since the first two Site B juveniles set out on their long journeys south and over three weeks since the adult female decided that it was time to leave. It now looks as though the young female, 3F, has been left at Site B on her own. Her father, 03(97), didn’t return to the nest last night and he was nowhere to be seen this morning so it could possibly mean that he has left Rutland for the 15th time. Here are some of John Wright’s photos showing the last time 03 was seen at Site B. I wonder how long it will be before 3F realises that she may now have to start fending for herself?
