Yes Rita, I'm thank you! :hug:
And yes Rita, Simba coming back was the best news of the day for me! :rh:
Watching how long it took Simba to get to the nest and how difficult for him it was, I think he'll be sleeping around tonight and probably will leave in the morning

7.49 pm Simba is flapping again. He's been active by hopping in the nest fast and back up to the upper branch. No way to keep up with all of it.

22h18 Great news, Simba is back… it was not easy for a new fledger to gain altitude, easyer to glide down but now he came back, step by step but he came back in its nest.
At this time Simba is preening

Hi Maddy, Rita, jwin and philjo. So good to see Simba make his way back to the nest. I’m sure he was hungry and it was hard the first time getting back. Tomorrow is a new day and I hope he ventures out again; Practice makes perfect. Thanks Maddy, Rita and zoomie for all the documentation and s’caps of his adventures.
