Hi Geoffrey,
Maybe but I didn't wish to get to the heart of the confusion, simply because I didn't wish to go over old ground. Yes there is confusion and yes I use the recent  ?scientific? use:  to fly from the nest meaning, as used in for example Aust Field Ornithology. Fledging is a discrete one-off, once only process for each individual bird.Yes its use should be clarified if used in any other way and it is, which is why it is confusing.
