Blue 057 not far from fledging

With 3 of this years brood having already fledged Blue 057 has been enjoying the extra space in the nest. Earlier today she engaged in some helicoptering, almost taking off out of view of the camera. By doing this she is strengthening her flight muscles and also gaining confidence. It won’t be long now until she takes her first flight!

A short time later on this afternoon 033 delivered a fish to the nest and it wasn’t too long before all 4 siblings were back on the nest to claim their share!

    4 chicks and so far so good. The fact they have all engaged in the helicoptering stage of learning to fly without mishap, such as one being knocked out of the nest, is also incredible. Truly amazing!
