Steady As She Goes

Kuyurnpa is off! She has now well and truly left her nest and is making steady progress, heading south-east along the ridge-line that forms the northern border of her parents’ territory. Our satellite data has not shown her making any long flights (keeping in mind that fixes are only taken every hour), which probably indicates she is still ‘finding her wings’. Her most recent roost site (used last night) is just under 1km away from her nest. It is interesting to see that she has not returned to roost at the nest since fledging. Maybe there’s a secret food supply her parents are leading her to?
