Well done on the 11, I have 10 but had two lads with me during the week who haven't an egg between them!!! And the real bad news is that the wind is back this last couple of hours with a vengeance.

These winds are crazy,today has been the best of the last four but it is to close in again from Tuesday.
I have three young who are getting a bit strong on the wing so had to give them their first outing yesterday. Out again today but they are happy enough just to flex their muscles a bit and walk around the roof of the loft. All the other birds are prisoners so if they do take off they will be on their own. I don't know when I was last in this position.
