TYWI FLEDGES! - 08:52 on 14th July. He fledged at 48 days, 16 hrs and 22 mins old. Tywi remained on the camera pole for 74 minutes before returning to the nest; he's been very confident and assured since fledging.

https://www.dyfiospreyproject.com/blog/ ... i-fledge-0Both boys have successfully fledged.
On Tuesday morning nobody was really expecting a fledge. Neither Tywi (KC7, the oldest brother) nor Teifi had been 'helicoptering', a behaviour typically seen as a definitive prerequisite to fledging.
Tywi had clearly not read the rule book.
At just before 9am he took off from the nest and landed on the camera pole above; a controlled flight to a perch outside the confines of the nest - so an official fledging.

31Juli - We're pretty sure that the intruder that we see most days around the Dyfi is our own Aeron, Monty and Glesni's son from 2017.
The good news is we think he is travelling around with a female. Here he is just 12 miles away yesterday on the Clywedog nest.
(Usual disclaimer: we have other nest platforms up and there are plenty of nesting sites around).

1 August - Full House.
We've reached our fifth month of the breeding season; August is when our ospreys start to fly south.
They won't go yet though - probably the end of the month or early September.
August is a time to be thankful that these beautiful birds have been successful, raised two healthy boys, and enriched all of our lives during these tumultuous and often depressing times.
