Yes they had a lot of growing to do, it seems ages since they hatched. Glad to say they are 9 weeks old now.

They take a while to grow and leave the nest area!

They look well grown up now!

Thanks everyone. They left the nest at 3 days old and managed to scramble up the roof to the flat dormer. Most annoying as the camera was aimed at nest! Husband went up on roof with a hard hat on and moved camera back a bit and we managed to see them as they went past camera. They are now flying all over but always come back each night. Bit worrying as they are getting used to our dogs and don’t seem bothered by us sharing their garden .

They are very entertaining to watch but they have turned us into nervous wrecks in case anything happens to them.
