WrenWatch 2016: Sun 19 June (VIDEO)
Sunday 19 June 2016: the boisterous birds are ready to leave the nest and there's excitement as each one in turn takes the plunge. Notice how the final young one flattens its feathers before leaving. In seconds it seems to change from a fluffy chick into a sleek bird.
The parents return several times to check the nest. One takes away some feathers. And that's it, they've gone.
All the videos from this our first nestcam of 2016 can be found here.

The high ground to the north of Bamburgh gives a great view of Bamburgh castle, the village and Farne Islands. While down on the beach or from the road you get a sense of the sheer size of the building.
Google asked the public which UK landmarks should be added to its Street View service and Bamburgh castle was the winner. You can see our Street View sightseeing tour on this page.
