Female Kestrel in the Chesworth nest box

 

A female Kestrel was recently spotted inside our specially designed nest box for the first time, to the excitement of the Chesworth community. The sighting was during a pair’s display close to the box in the same afternoon.

We are hoping for many more sightings and successful nest-building to come. The electric pole supporting the box was generously supplied and installed by a team from UK Power Networks, back in Autumn 2019.
