The great escape

The first two chicks flew off this morning but with mixed results. One has disappeared into the trees but the other was found floundering around on the ground at the base of the tower. Staff managed to coerce the chick into a towel and it appears there’s been no damage or injury. A climb up the tower, with brief photo opportunity and a quick roost intrusion to clean the viewing window, and the chick was reunited with remaining sibling. Both seem to have settled down again and appear to be happy to be reunited. Still no sign of the 1st chick outside yet but we’ve got all campus staff on the lookout for us.
