Red Hawks After Breakfast
Red Hawk is an old Lancashire name for the Kestrel, based on the colour of its plumage. Ian and I went to check one of our Kestrel boxes this morning and as Ian popped his head into the box he could see five young. Four out of the five were a good size, but there was one runt that was quite a bit smaller, and this bird wasn't ringed.
