patily said:Thanks MARY SCYLLA mentioned on LotL that 496 had fledged then looked as if he wouldn't leave the nest any more today If she were to look in now she would be surprised to see that the nest is empty According to John Williams on chat he left 496 quite happily sitting below the nest Evidently there are some thick branches there that they use for perching
I said elsewhere - probably after he'd already fledged:

Having said all that ^^^ ... isn't it thrilling that so many of our precious chicks have fledged over the past few days?
I'm packing up, zzzzzzzzzzzz.

As far as I can see, our solo chick didn't come back to the nest until 18:00 and for the next hour he was... active or wot ?!
What an amazing boy!
The 2-hour evening add-on has been downloading for the past 3 hours almost, it seems to have stopped and restarted itself and now it's on "588% Part 1/2"... beyond me, I can't do anything with it till it completes and so you've only got a supper fish snap I got from rollback.
In reply to scylla:
Well, she wasn't there at bedtime but she was there at dawn:
I couldn't see her dip into the water and I couldn't see that she already had a fish on the perch - but it sure looks like she's got one here, as she flies off around the corner:
I clicked on the YouTube live stream reminder - but it didn't work, forgot I had the mike muted so the fanfare was wasted on me.
Anyway, when it dawned on me I found Seren munching eagerly and 496 preening, so I guess he'd already eaten:
Our little lad flew off @ 07:26.
Last night's evening session is still downloading - 1275% Part 1/2 - must have been going for 5 hours at least. And if I stop it now it will revert to 0%, but I think I'm going to have to bite the bullet.

I did bite the bullet in the end, the whole lot was lost. However, it's now available and turns out to be only just over an hour long instead of the usual nearly 2 hours, and the whole time 496 was standing around waiting, often looking out to our right.
2 fish during the day session:
No mad rush for this fish, Dylan ended up feeding 496 a few bites, then 496 tried to self-feed, Seren was nagging about ? the whole time and Dylan was feaking in our way before he left - then Seren fed herself and 496, they were both still on the nest at the end of the day session.
