Home Alone

It’s been another exciting day in Manton Bay. Not only has 1J been making regular flights around the nest, his sister 3J also took to the air for the very first time today! At 7am this morning she jumped from the nest up to the French perch but it took a few more hours before she’d built up the courage to leave the nest completely. She circled high up in the air and after a few minutes she landed in the tall Poplar trees behind the nest, a cool 80ft up! As I write she is still sitting in the tree, possibly wondering what to do next. Meanwhile, 2J has spent most of the day on his own, it’ll be a few days before he’s ready to join his brother and sister.
