Fledging!

Blue YZ has fledged- that is, she has  taken her maiden flight from the nest this morning.

She took off a few minutes ago (10:08), heading towards her mother who was sitting waiting on the ‘Boingy branch’ to the east of the nest. She flew strongly and confidently which is great. She is now sitting somewhere in the lochside trees, watched by her mother who is still on the same branch, looking unpreturbed.

Blue YZ should make it back to the nest safely within a few hours- unless she copies her brother Blue 44 last year!

More news as it happens.
