Kestrel chick, West Kerry, 7th June 2013 (John Lusby).
A Kestrel chick ringed at a nest box site on the DIngle Peninsula... any guesses what the victim might be? Young Song Thrush perhaps? Maybe a juvenile Starling. (For more on recent Kestrel ringing in Kerry see the Duhallow Raptor Conservation Project blog at www.duhallow.blogspot.ie)
