We have two girls and a boy and to most people's surprise, Bobby Bach turned out to be a female!

The first (oldest) chick was 37 days old today and he weighed 1,520g - right where you'd expect a male to be at.
However, his two younger siblings, both weighing exactly the same, weighed almost 13% more at 1,710g.

Here's the summary with their new names on the right: Z2 Aeron-Male , Z3 Menai-Female and Z4 Eitha-Female

Rutland, Manton Bay - July 6, 2017

This morning, both juveniles were getting excitable at around 05:20, flapping and jumping around.
5:28 > 2 AN on edge - 2AM flaps, We could tell that 2AN was very ready to go,
as she kept venturing closer to the edge of the nest

Let her fly - By Kayleigh Brookes on July 6, 2017

What an exciting day! We have been expecting 2AN to take her first flight imminently, as she is seven and a half weeks old and has been showing signs of being ready to go for a few days. However, recently the weather hasn’t been conducive to fledging, as there has hardly been a drop of wind, and they need a breeze to excite them and give them a bit of a lift!

2AN fledged at 10:14 this morning, making her the first osprey to fledge from a UK nest this year! (That we know of!). We had a school group in the centre at the time and they were very excited, as were the staff and in particular volunteers Steve and Roger who saw her go from the hide! She didn’t give us very much warning that she was about to go – there was no helicoptering at all, she just jumped around the nest a few times, then she lifted up and away!

She circled the bay and was accompanied by Maya, as is usual on the juveniles’ first flight. You can see them both in the background in the above video – 2AN flies towards Lax Hill, then Maya appears and both of them come back towards the bay and over the nest, where 2AM was watching them. 2AN managed to land on the leaning perch in Manton Bay, and that is where she remained for the next few hours! Later on she had several more flights, and is very good at landing...

06 July 2017 - PH2 has fledged! By Jane Hamilton, Assistant Ranger

The eldest osprey chick (PH2) fledged the nest this afternoon at 2.04pm.
First flights normally last just a few minutes – PH2 flew a few circled around the nest
and then found a convenient branch in a Scots Pine to rest. She has been perched there
ever since – perhaps a little nervous to make the return journey!

Dyfi, Wales: Menai has fledged.

After threatening to jump off all day, Menai finally decided it was time to test her wings out in earnest at precisely 15:29. She didn't go far, just a hop really to the camera pole. Soon afterwards, however, she set of for a relatively long-haul flight of over two minutes, finally deciding to try and land on the anti-perch perch on top of the larch tree.

She made it back to the nest soon afterwards with what can be described as a minor misjudgment. She soon untangled herself from the offending rail-twig into the sanctuary of the nest where a few minutes later Monty brought a mullet in for the whole family.

Menai is on the nest perch at the start of the video:

Dyfi, Wales: Eitha has fledged at 12:53, 18th July, she finally plucked up her courage and took the plunge - directly off the new nest perch.

As happens with many fledglings, she initially went down, but soon reacted before ascending and continuing on for over three and a half minutes, soaring and flapping around the Dyfi as if she'd been doing it all her life. Can you just imagine what goes through a bird's mind during these first few seconds of flight?

Eitha was 53 days old when she took her maiden flight, a day older than the Dyfi average for females. This was to be expected as Eitha is the largest of this year's offspring - she'd probably hit the scales at over 2Kgs at the moment. Larger birds tend to take a day or two longer to get airborne.

Aberfoyle, Scotland: The osprey chicks have now been ringed and returned to their nest - Clarach is back on the nest too after keeping watch from up in the air. At one point we saw both adults and an intruder circling the area.

They are both male and have been given the darvic rings LH0 and LH1.
LH0 has been satellite tagged and LH1 may be tagged later as was a wee bit too small.

We should be able to keep track of their progress over the next few years.
