The first of the young ospreys also made its first flight, a few hours after the young black stork left its nest.
In all ways suitable and safe weather for beginning to fly: wind from the south 3-5 m/s, some 20 degrees of warmth.
The first daring bird was the smaller, judged by eye, presumably the young male Daimar; the larger, female Daisy, stayed in the nest to observe (so the young ospreys are called by the forum since their leg rings start with the letter D).

In their third year of life the young birds from our nest will already start their own nesting, until then they stray around, to become familiar with co-specifics on the flights and elsewhere. Ospreys in
