Tales of birding, ringing and observing wildlife around the Fylde area of Lancashire and beyond.
Friday, 12 June 2015
Yesterday teatime Ian, Kim and Me checked one of our Kestrel boxes. We knew that there were five young in the box as there is a camera in the box linked to the science department of the school where the box is located. And sure enough when Ian went up the ladder and peered in to the box there were five healthy Kestrel chicks. All five were ringed and replaced in the box and it was nice to have a successful outcome for a change based on recent losses in some of our boxes.

What a cutey!
Stay tuned for hopefully more Kestrels and one or two other birds from boxes soon!
