    The young bird of prey named Blue 44 was missing since last Monday but re-appeared at his mother’s nest on Friday.

    Though it is unusual for an osprey chick to fledge and not return to the nest within 24 hours, according to BBC, it is believed that Blue 44 was “daunted by the maiden flight and became reluctant to try again”.
