In reply to Korky:
Korky said:Thanks jaydee. I’m slightly surprised they are being negative about the fledged chick not surviving. There are examples of chicks being fed off nest by their parents.
It is difficult with no camera and limited monitoring, Korky, but despite seeing the male 209/Chipchase on every visit bar one, 208/Cragside has not been sighted. Realistically, that is not promising for her survival after 12 days off the nest. As said, I'd be delighted if the assessment is incorrect, as would everyone else here.
203/Chesters is off!
