The four Manton Bay chicks are now around eight weeks old and last week we reported that the eldest chick, 080, fledged and flew for the first time on Friday 26th June. It wasn’t long before the second of the four chicks fledged. 082 fledged early Monday morning (29th June) at 06:15! 081 must have thought that flying looks like fun because he also took the leap of faith on Wednesday afternoon (1st July) at 16:04! Both 082 and 081 decided to play relatively safe and flew straight to the perch above the camera!
Here is the moment 082 fledged!
