This family of fluff are in residence in a tagasaste tree just outside Number 8 Network’s window. After being fuelled by Mum (or is it Dad?) they launch themselves from the branch and try their wings.
From hatching to fledging takes only about two weeks. Both parents feed the chicks after leaving the nest but once Mum starts work on her next nest, feeding becomes Dad’s responsibility.
