I got to say Paul yes they are looking good.
I just hope the cats are'nt around when they do go, theres a few around my area, although theres plenty cover, long grass and plenty of bush's.

Well folks they've all fledged, 7 left between about 8.00pm - 8.30 last night ( yes you read that right ) the other three left this morning.
10 eggs, 10 chicks, its the most i've had so i'm very happy they all made out of the nest.

Amazing Pete to have 100% success, well done.
Ten eggs is a large clutch for a GT so even better that they all fledged.

That is fantastic Pete. Strange the first ones left it so late to leave. What a brilliant outcome. Banana! Bye Banana!

Had seven of the young GT's sharing the communal bath this evening.
I managed to get a shot of it.
I'm very happy i've seen seven out of the ten that left the nest, if thats the end result i would say that was a big success by the parents.
