In keeping with the recent run of birds of prey featured on the blog, Dr. Robertson has sent in this great shot of a juvenile Kestrel. We have not determined that Kestrel has bred on Alderney this year and, without any sightings since the spring, we may now be looking at passage migrants. After a long drought, during the last week Kestrel has been reported most days, so perhaps these are birds passing through on migration.
