Well it looks like there are only 4 left

This is Big Chick


Always my favorite, the bravest and most adventurous so far.

I will miss our hunting and tug of war games.

I rescued him from his half brother who was attacking him the first day out of the nest.

I picked him up and put him on a branch right in front of his mother.

I was not swooped.

I spent the 2 weeks of our holiday worrying that he would not be there on our return. But he was and can be seen in flight after being at the front of the food queue on the first morning.


That was the last we saw of him. Always sad when the young are chucked out.

Sonia remains but is very timid.

We will miss him.
