Re: Kestrel Webcam

Yes, wow they almost look like the parents!

They are still 5 (yeaaah!) although there still one hidden in the corner.
But this time it seems he/she is being protected by 3 others... after all it was not a weak one, but the Mafia's boss.


The last one seems to be walking a lot, agitated. It looks like that one is willing to learn to fly soon!

Don't worry, we have a look at them most days and they all seem pretty strong and active.

Re: Kestrel Webcam

Kestrels will fledge at about 28-30 days old. In the first few weeks afterwards they will hang around and be fed by their parents while they learn how to hunt and fly.
At the period just before around 25 days of age) they are very sensitive to disturbance and might jump from the nest before they are actually able to fly. Absolutely do not approach the nest at this time! Once they are on the gound if they can't fly yet, they are easy prey for all the cats, foxes and other predators...

Re: Kestrel Webcam

They are about that age now, looking very much like adult birds. They are stretching their wings and one or two have ventured onto the edge of the nesting box.
I keep having a look at the website to see what is going on, I would love to see one or more fly.
There are video archives where you can look back at the development of the birds, fascinating!

Amazing

They are already very skilled with flying! (well...maybe the one who hit the wall was a bit less skilled... ouch )

Re: Kestrel Webcam

It looks like the babies have all taken to the air. it is a little sad to see an empty nest
However, here's to a long and successful life for all of them, and also here's to next year and the next generation to come.

Re: Kestrel Webcam

Looking at the condition they've left that nest in, they're going to have a lot of trouble getting their deposit back from the Regie/Verwaltung!

Re: Kestrel Webcam

This, I think, is the final update of the kestrels for this year. Watch the first video, some beautiful photos of the five youngsters as they try out their wings before leaving the nest for good, put to the music 'Time to say goodbye'.
Actually very moving, excuse me, I think I've got something in my eye

Re: Kestrel Webcam

Apparently there is a problem with the server transmitting the images to the internet. Have you tried clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the screen (Linkes/Rechtes Bild in Player starten)?
Unfortunately, there are as yet no kestrels nesting. I have seen one outside the nesting box a couple of times recently, but no activity inside, probably due to the cold spring.
Maybe things will start to happen now the weather has warmed up, I do hope so. We loved watching them all hatch and grow up last year.

Re: Kestrel Webcam

At this moment I am watching a kestrel, female I think, sitting outside the nesting box. Could something be happening?

Re: Kestrel Webcam

Had a look twice today, and both times the male was perched outside the nest box, before flying away.

Re: Kestrel Webcam

Wow wow wow wow!

Hubby and I have just watched the female lay her first egg!!!!!!
I have never seen that before, what a privilege to see such an intimate event, live, even if it was via webcam!

It was strange, dad was there until just before she laid the egg, then flew back just after, maybe he was giving her some privacy!
He then immediately flew off again, probably to wet the baby's head
