The osprets cannot wait to be fed while it's Mrs G's turn to serve the fish:

20/07/2016 - Great news from the nest!

At 10:35 this morning W7 took to the wing for the first time.

Reports from the protection site say that she was soon joined by both Mrs G and Aran giving a fantastic display with all three of them flying in loose formation around the nest.

W7’s maiden flight lasted 2 minutes and 13 seconds in total.

In recent hours W8 has been making some great efforts at following his big sister by helicoptering high above the nest – it may not be long now before he too takes flight!

Will he? Won't he? The anticipation has been building up all day at Glaslyn. W8 has been close several times to taking the plunge today. Bouts of serious helicoptering, interspersed with long periods on the nest rim have kept us all on the edge of our seats for hours on end. He's currently having a lie down and thinking about it! Typical man!

After some exploratory trips along the perch over the last 24 hours, we're pleased to confirm that W8 finally fledged successfully at 1623hrs this afternoon. Here's a short video of him taking flight outside the nest for the first time...

W7 has fallen from the perch and this occurred at around midnight, their time. That is all that can be reported at this time until it's daylight and they either see her or can do a search for her. This is not good as she has had problems with a leg or foot and has not been well. :cry:
The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

04/08/2016 - Thoughts on intervention…

We don’t have the faintest idea what happened to W7 to cause her injury. All we know is that she landed on the nest at 3pm last Thursday (28th July) and her right leg was not in a good way. We’ve seen her come and go over the past few days and now that she could be eating away from the nest it’s difficult to know how much food she’s taking on board. We do know that when she’s tried to eat on the nest we’ve seen her take less food than her sibling because she’s not as able to manoeuvre herself into a position to receive it from Mrs G. We can also see that when Aran leaves a fish on the nest she’s struggled to use her right talon to hold onto it. For many of us this is difficult to watch because we all know that she’s going to need food to recover from her injury and build up her strength for the long migration South in 4 – 5 weeks.

Seeing her struggle to eat is heart-wrenching, and these strong emotions can build to a point where we feel we have to do something about it. However, there are countless practical, ethical and legal reasons why we can’t launch into action and rescue an injured wild bird while it’s still on the nest. This is why we do not intend to intervene with W7 unless she falls to the ground and is not able to take-off. You see, it’s ok for W7 to injure herself and perhaps die in the process. But what’s not ok is for us to intervene and injure or kill her. Not only do we not want to do that, but it would pose some serious questions for an organisation responsible for protecting these wild birds.

W7: She has grabbed a fish standing at the rim and is plugging her meal!

Doesn't look bad now...she is eating well.
