Breeding cycle common kestrel 2021

This is a compilation of the kestrel breeding season 2021 . It shows the complete cycle from egg to the first flight of the juveniles. 

Nesting took place in a nestbox , hanging on the top of our barn.

A couple of jackdaws were also trying to breed in the same nestbox , but were driven off by the kestrels. 

This resulted in some remarkable shots .

Location : Belgium Sint-Laureins East Flanders
