Bird with broken leg has fledged.

One of the two remaining nestlings has just fledged and confirmed that the other one has a broken of deformed leg.

I'm getting more convinced there is something wrong with the legs on one of the remaining nestlings. I have never seen it stand up

One nestling is missing. It probably didn't enjoy the fireworks last night.

Both parents continue to care for their egg(s), taking less then 2 minutes to switch the watch.
