Stockbridge Reserve (members only) - Kestrels have successfully fledged their four young. The last left the box yesterday. Today the female has been arriving at the box with food and may have a larder as she does not always seek out the young who are in the nearby trees.
Other birds recorded - pair of Redpoll at the feeder, Blackcap, Whitethroat, Willow Warbler & plenty of hawking over the water by Sand, House Martin, Swallow & Swift.
