Kestrel Family & Barn Owl pics

There's some rather big news which may or may not be reaching this blog page soon... it'll be relevant to nearly all my readers.

In the meantime here's what the post title is regarding. One of the adult Barn Owls put on a very brief show this evening and this is what I managed to get from the viewing platform:

The young Kestrels have finally begun their soft fledging, with at least three of the five having hopped to the nearest tree and then back to the nest box. Here's some images of them; not particularly close up as the adult male was to-ing and fro-ing with food and I didn't want to disturb proceedings.

    Showing really nicely almost all morning today from about 7 until 11 ish near the FSB hunting near the pond dipping pond. Well worth a try next time you have the chance.
