Getting closer … to the edge and to flying

A late afternoon visit to the Data Centre brought the best views yet of the chicks — two of them, anyway.

At first I saw only Rowena on the nest ledge, and Ivanhoe at his favourite perch on the far left. No chicks.

Eventually, though, one appeared next to Rowena, and another next to the blob. Both are showing lots of feathers and less down, and one was venturing closer to the edge of the ledge. I hope the third chick was napping and too far back on the ledge to see.
