Lots Going On


We found the first breeding Kestrel of the year last night in a nest box near to Crowley. This female bird was carefully incubating four eggs which should hatch very soon.


 
 
 
In the adjacent field a lone Tawny Owl was found and ringed. The development of the primary flight feathers shows that this bird will be capable of leaving the nest box to hop about on the tree branches very soon.
