Female Kestrel feeds a Bank Vole to her five chicks (John Lusby).
In this fantastic nest camera footage we see a female Kestrel feed a Bank Vole to her five young chicks. The nest box is in Co. Kerry, and the chicks are probably between 6 and 12 days old. Shortly before, the female had arrived at the nest and the male arrived shortly after and presented her with the catch before he flew off. After a cautionary pause, sitting a short distance away, she flew to the nest box with her prey. Watch as she feeds it to her hungry brood.Filmed under licence from the National Parks and Wildlife Service.
