Morning ALL Today. 096 is 107 days old & 095 is 105 days old 096 was last seen on the nest at 08:51 on 20 Aug and 095 at 09:06 yesterday (22 Aug). Both juveniles were not seen later around the nest as reported by LAM so the question now is have 096 and 095 set off on their first migration? The next few days will tell!
Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.
LAM - hope you both had a pleasant evening and it was looking pretty miserable this morning but thankfully it is now looking a bit brighter. Rutland last advised, while our last sighting of 096 at the nest was 20 Aug, that the family were still here 21 August and 096 on the T Perch. No sign of any of the family this morning on the nest so look forward to any info you can get and of course the last sighting of 096 which you mentioned you were "working on". Have a great day and hopefully Maya and 33 put on a good show for you.
