(Not good) NEWS 30 November 2021.
No sign of Yurruga, I'm afraid. I've looked every day for an hour or two, but he's not been seen since last Thursday when spotted on a roof. He was seen later on the same roof by a colleague in a thunderstorm. It's of concern, not just because by now I would expect him to be using the roost trees and 'flight training ground', but due to the behaviour of the adults, long pair-bonding sessions being rare so soon after fledging. I have a nasty feeling that we may have lost this chap, but will keep looking for another week.
(The two eggs were non-viable. Probably one was infertile and the other fertilised, but without a formed chick. I removed them and one will go to the Australian Museum (one exploded!).
Just as well I don't have to be monitoring every minute, as the cam's been dropping out quite frequently.

Noting new to report re sightings, some calls heard early morning - of which I couple I could find, I have up trying to find more, people must have much better speakers than my built-in laptop ones.

NEWS 2 December 2021
Dr Cilla Kinross:
Despite daily searches, there has been no sign of Yurruga since he was spotted on a roof near the tower in a thunderstorm on Thursday 25 November. Indications of his presence due to recent prey transfer appear to be false alarms. Several calls have been hears, but none have been verified.
It's of concern, not just because by now I would expect him to be using and flying around the roost trees, but due to the behaviour of the adults, long pair-bonding sessions being rare so soon after fledging. In addition, the adults have not seriously 'buzzed' me during my walks, which they would have done if a juvenile was close. I have a feeling that we may have lost this chap.
I haven't done any catching up today yet.
I'm going to stop reporting now, unless something "special" comes to my notice.
