Not sure if that mother and daughter (KC2) sitting on the branch at the front of the nest?

I think its KC3 sitting on the branch with mum, after taking his first (very long :eek: ) flight :clap: , and knocking KC2 off the branch as he landed oops :laugh:
KC4 is still not helicoptering, cmon KC4 you can do it! :flying:

Been watching Glaslyn intensely the last couple of days waiting for KC3 to take to the air. Hedge needed cut so I started it this morning and guess what? KC3 fledges. :cry2:

Aw no! How typical! :( . That was one of the funniest fledges I've seen, he was flying around for about 9 min, and I think he kept flying because he was a bit unsure how to land, so he kept flying just over the nest, and KC2 and KC4 both had to duck few times :laugh:

Wet day at loch Arkaig.

I bet KC4 fledges between 11.00 and 13.00. That's when I need to go into town on a few errands. She is already standing at the edge of the nest.:flying:

Vera (JJ8) at Loch Arkaig is doing a lot of 'wing flapping' at the moment.

PS - Captain (JJ7 and youngest) doesn't appear to be on the nest. Is he sitting on the branch behind the nest, the cam itself or has he fledged?

Glaslyn - Only one chick on the nest. Must be KC4 but will she go today?

Loch Arkaig - Think I was confused on Wednesday when it appeared Captain had fledged. Must just have been out of sight from the webcam. All three chicks are on the nest at the moment.
