The story so far: Kestrels have been nesting on our balcony regularly since 2007. The male of the kestrel pair, which spends the winter on our balcony, has been living with us since November 2019. With the previous female (she lived with us from July 2018 to January 2022), they brought out 6 young in 2020 and 4 young in 2021. With the current Mrs Kestrel, who  appeared here on February 12, 2022, then 4 young ones last year.

Both arrive before sunset to spend the night on one of the perches. In the morning they fly away after the sunrise. Courtship began in early February. Thanks to this, you can see “our” kestrels online more often, even during the day.

When the kestrels are not present, you can see also other birds: tits, nuthatches (regular winter visitors in small mixed troops), sparrows…  and also pigeons, whose presence is a permanent source of conflicts with kestrels.

The swift nestboxes next to the kestrel’s balcony are currently empty.  The return of its tenants can be expected in the first days of May.
