After days of worrying about the welfare of the female kestrel, we finally find out her unfortunate fate.
The male kestrel is still hunting avidly for his chicks. This morning the kestrels had a vole, a juvenile blackbird, and two more voles all before 12.30pm. The story developers were able to have a really close look at the juvenile blackbird. Rest assured, though, we believe that it was not our newly fledged blackbird - the tail was too long!
The kestrel chicks are looking very healthy. This morning, they have been feeding on a selection of voles and small birds supplied by dad.
