If you’ve been watching the webcam over the past 12 hours or so, you’l have seen that T6 hasn’t moved from the back of the nest. She looks very unsteady on her feet, and has spent much of the time with her eyes closed and head drooped. We’re not sure exactly what is wrong with the young female, but it seems likely that she has contracted some kind of illness.
We have decided that the best course of action is to let nature take its course. The Manton Bay nest is very difficult to access and we are concerned that if we attempt to intervene we may actually do more harm than good. For the time being we will continue to monitor the situation closely, and hope that T6 improves.
