Kestrel Chicks

Last night I revisited the Kestrel site that we discovered at the beginning of June to check upon progress. Two plump, healthy chicks were old enough for me to ring them but sadly one of the chicks had died and there was no trace of the fourth. I suspect that he had contributed to the weight gain of his siblings.

  1. It's a shame about the dead/missing chicks but survival of the fittest is a very natural thing. I hope the two live ones make it to maturity. Kind regards, Brian.
