Kestrel update ....

Ingrid rung at 6pm to say that Roy has eaten a pinky (small mouse) so he's going to be ok hopefully :-)

Roy the Kestrel


Late last week Ian found a Kestrel in the local field whilst walking Moss. It didn't appear injured so he brought it home and looked after it for a few days whilst we rang around to find out what to do next. In the meantime Ian contacted Eagle Hieghts to get some advice. Then this morning we were put in contact with Ingrid at Swale Wildlife Rescue this morning, without people like Ingrid these birds would not survive. Ian named him Roy after his friend at work. Roy is now with Ingrid for the winter in rehab! I'll let you know the progress as in the Spring we can go and see him go back into the wild. Happy ending.
