Still to fledge.

15th July

Yet another picture of one of the adult Kingfishers coming to the nest this morning. I am now more than amazed that they still haven't fledged the nest. I had expected them to have left 6 days ago and I am really surprised that my observations and then predictions earlier on were so off the mark. There is a possibility that they have fledged during the day today while I have been away but, it's a mystery and I fully expect fledging to take place tomorrow. Fingers crossed because my patience is now being stretched having visited the nest site every morning for the last 2 weeks...... I could do with a rest!!!
