The brothers are so close in age. It was just a matter of waiting for another one to fledge after Ervie’s flight yesterday. Turns out – it was Falky!
At 09:07. Here are three video clips of this historic moment.
Falky flew from perch to perch.
Unlike Ervie, Falky made a perfect landing.
Bazza, you are next!
Thank you for joining me and congratulations to all at Port Lincoln. Two fantastic fledges. One to go -. Then we celebrate a real historic moment for it will be the first time this nest has ever fledged 3. Mum and Dad you were great this year. Congratulations.
Thank you to the Port Lincoln Osprey Project for their streaming cam where the video clips and screen captures were taken.
I went to the UK as a Commonwealth Scholar in 1990 and received my PhD from the University of Leicester in 1993. After three decades of university teaching, I retired to devote my time to the study of raptor behaviour. I am particularly interested in Ospreys and am working on a long term project on third hatch survival and siblicide in these raptors. My blog is a result of a fascination with my local wildlife and the desire to encourage others to love and care for birds! I live on the Canadian Prairies and prior to the pandemic travelled a lot. I am questioning the use of aviation fuel at the moment as we all strive to help our planet. My early research was in politics and art including British public statues exported to Southeast Asia and Vietnam Resistors that contributed much to Canadian ceramics. Books and articles were published on those subjects over a period of 3 decades. Now I am working on books for children so they can learn about the challenges our raptors face.
