I have recently enjoyed the privilege of spending time with a local Kestrel family. The adults have been successful in raising 4 chicks and I have managed to take photos of them all so thought these birds deserved an album dedicated to them! The weather has rarely been kind, lots of rain and wind but they have survived and all seem hale and hearty!
It has been such a pleasure to see the antics of the juveniles, testing their wings and balance, and the excitement and noise whenever the adults have brought back prey for them, also to see them at last flying around confidently. Just so amazing and a real treat to get an insight into their lives and to chart their progress.
