I know you all like to take a guess at when events will happen and the first fledging at Loch Garten is now very near.
Caledonia is 48 days tomorrow which coincides with the earliest age at which a chick has fledged in the UK.
Here is a chart of the more recent history of fledgings at Loch Garten. Here was a fledging blog discussion from 2008
So what is your prediction of fledging times for Caledonia and Alba
Give a date and a time.
ChloeB and Tiger's data site ? Link to the Important Loch Garten Links
Caledonia on 4/7/2012 about 10AM.
Alba 6/7/2012 about 12PM.
Caledonia 7/7/12 at around 2pm
Alba 9/7 at around 12pm.
My guess is Caledonia 4th July 2-15pm
Alba 6th July 11-30am
Lowry snap almost the same again::)
Cally - Friday 6th at 9am = 51 days
Alba - Friday 6th at 3.30pm = 49 days
Loch Garten stats. and All the important links for LG.
My prediction is for Caledonia to Fledge on 9th July @ 0808 hours
and for Alba to Fledge on 11th July @ 1711 hrs LOL....

Cally-Thursday 5th 11AM =50 Days
Alba- Saturday 7th 10.30=50 Days
They haven't done much wingercising yet so I don't think they'll go soon, unless they are caught by a gust of wind. Was it 2010 that chick 1 took a very early flight and was then intercepted by intruders? I'll go for Caledonia to take to the skies on 10th July at around 2.30. Alba will follow her on the 12th at about 11.00
Here are my predicions
Caledonia to fledge on Saturday 7th July at 9.15 am
Alba to fledge at 2.25 pm on Sunday 8th July at 2.25 pm
I predict them both fledging on Monday, 9th July.
Caledonia first at 10.30am (54 days), followed by Alba at 3.15pm (52 days)
