Character profile:

May 2011: White Black White was one egg of a two egg clutch with its sibling egg left behind in the nest.  It was hatching on the journey back and has now formed quite a stable group with Pepper and Charlie.  June 2011:  The stable group is no more...  White Black White seems to have taken exception to its neighbour, Pepper with which it is often scrapping. It is quite boisterous and very vocal!  July 2011:  Sadly, White Black White developed some severe bowing of its legs during the rearing phase, and for its own welfare, it was put down by the project vet on 1st July 2011.
