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 .

A very fascinating video, showing nature in its hunt and be hunted guise.
A good old fisticuffs to claim the nest box from the jackdaws. I found it fascinating how tolerant the kestrel was to the jackdaw whilst feeding the chicks.
