Glaslyn - only one chick on the nest. Think it must be KC4. Wet day and she looks miserable.

Loch Arkaig - two chicks on the nest and Mum. Don't know where the other chick is.

PS - KC2 just arrived followed by Dad with a fish. Was KC2 watching him fishing, beat him home and grabbed the fish immediately. Not a big fish and will only do one.

I just read in the chat Glaslyn chat that JJ6 left the nest/fledged at 06:13 this morning and hasn't come back yet. Really worrying :(

Loch Arkaig - Yes, Doddie (JJ6 - first to hatch) fledged at 06.13 this morning. Nice video of him fledging.

Glaslyn - No sign of KC4 fledging yet but it should be soon.

Aila just left the nest. Maybe she is going to look for Doddie.

Not sure if KC4 has fledged or not (been stripping wallpaper). Can anyone enlighten me?

She hasn't yet, there is a persistent intruder that I think is slowing KC4 in fledging, because adults have to keep chasing him/her off and youngsters have to go down for cover. Mrs G chased them off for the second time just earlier after they followed KC3 coming back to the nest.

Its a wrong time to be stripping wallpaper peregrine :eek: , you are missing out on all excitement, she just took a second flight! :rara: :woohoo:
Official fledging time is 18.44, and she took another flight less than a 30 mins later, with a very good perch landing :clap:
