1st July

Regent’s Park

Four of the five Kestrel juveniles have now fledged. The last bird still looks a few days away from leaving, though I am sure she is really tempted to join her siblings in the nearby trees. They on the other hand still want to use there nest box, which is proving difficult for some of them.

The adult male keeps an eye on his young from a discreet distance.

She gets excited when a couple of her siblings come back, one unfortunately overshot the landing stage and was trying to workout how to get back up to the box.

It is not easy landing on a vertical branch, as you can see.
