Kestrel chicks ringed

Kestrel chick, Co. Kerry, 24th June 2013 (M.O'Clery).

The Kestrels chicks featured in previous posts below are now old enough to be ringed. The four seem to be in good health and well fed. The last downy whitish feathers will disappear over then next week at which stage they will be fully grown and ready for their first flight.
