Watch this brilliant kestrel video
Local patch reporter Robert Fuller has been filming an inquisitive kestrel.
“I was surprised to discover that a pair of kestrels, two jackdaws and a tawny owl had been inspecting a nestbox in my garden. I put the nestbox up to attract the kestrel pair, and in spring rigged a camera so I could watch them. After the falcon chicks fledged, it was occupied by stock doves that abandoned two eggs. The footage I captured here shows a kestrel taking an interest in the eggs. I’m hoping the kestrels will use the nestbox again." Robert Fuller
