A female Kestrel incubating

A female Kestrel incubates her five eggs, at a site in Co. Kerry (Video: John Lusby).

Using a special camera (under licence), John Lusby managed to get some amazing, high quality footage of a female Kestrel in one of our nest boxes in Co. Kerry last week. You can just see the eggs under the Kestrel as she settles over them to keep them warm. This is the nest box featured in the post below, which you can see HERE. John had checked 21 nests in the past week or so and only 8 so far showed signs of breeding. We hope to capture more great footage in the coming weeks as the season and the nests progress.
