Kestrel box to help reverse a species in decline

See if you can spot the newest bird box on the farm… it’s around 5 metres up an electricity pole. The box is to attract breeding Kestrels, so keep a look out over the Riverside wetland project next spring.

The pole is newly donated and installed by UK Power Networks, thanks to a project developed between local UK Power Networks staff member Paul Maynard and the Friends of Chesworth Farm, supported by the HDC countryside warden team. The Friends funded the nest box itself and they will help keep everyone up to date with news as the seasons change.

With thanks to the UK Power Networks team: Dave Mitchelson, Paul Maynard, Lee Carron, Graham Willard and Craig Wyeth plus Ryan Allison and Tim Thomas. Photography by Ryan Allison, David Verrall and Craig Wyeth.
