Up, up and away

Its a nerve-wracking time waiting for the chicks to fledge but on Sunday, Breagha (female), took her first tentative flight much to our delight. Her first voyage took her up around the nest a couple of times before landing behind the forest to spend a couple of days gathering herself for the next one. Mara is still to make the leap. He was bravely branching-out yesterday so will he still be on the nest this morning...better go and have a look!
