    Kestrel Update 20-05-2020

    Arrived on a sunny morning with both birds watching me.

    The male was also keeping a wary eye on a couple of wood pigeons fighting on the edge of the roof

    The male had brought a vole(?) before I arrived

    Looks like the male had already removed the head so she just removed some of the fur

    She then went back to the nest to feed the chicks

    I was a bit concerned as the smallest/youngest chick was just laying in the nest and not competing for food, happily the female made a point of going to feed it and it soon had a bulging crop. The youngest chick will only survive if there is plenty of prey and the adults are successful at hunting.

              Another fine update. If they'd been peregrines you wouldn't have seen those pigeons for dust.
