Merlin's baby feathers barely hanging on.

One of three young Merlins in this tree, each now venturing out of their nest to roost on separate branches, has been working away at preening to remove its white 'baby' feathers. A few times while watching them this evening there were often close to a dozen of the fluffy white feathers drifting to the ground. It won't be long before they're flying!
