Confirmation from Rutland of 096's fledge @ 12:12
Sheila, Alison & Alan - you're welcome :-) Yes, Alan 096 is quick of the mark at 54 days old but not the earliest. I've just checked back to 2019 as I recall 055 and 056 being early and see they both fledged at 53 days old. I am not sure about the earliest fledge on record, perhaps Tiger would know?
Thanks Karen, It appears it is not all that early, it just seemed like it without checking the records
Intruder about. Not on cam
It calmed down, Maya looked very alert and then flew off 15.59

Wow, fantastic news - many thanks Karen!
095 looks over the edge - I often wonder if they are watching their food source below!!
Maya remains on the nest with her - 096 has still to return

096 is still sitting on the camera perch and 33 has a fish according to this latest FB post from Rutland
16:45 33, after having had his share, arrives with the fish
33 flies off
Maya begins to feed 095
18:48 096 returns to the nest
095 steps back and Maya gives 096 some well deserves fish
