By the second week of June the chicks were fully feathered and often seen wing-flapping in preparation for their first flights. Both were flying by mid-June. Initially they are quite clumsy but learn fast. They continue to be seen around Sussex Heights. Let’s hope they continue to do well. To date, a total of 60 young have fledged from this nest box at Sussex Heights. A remarkable achievement.
