Latest News, May 2019

A pair of kestrels are nesting in our front yard. We put up a nesting box on a pole in 2016, and kestrels have shown a passing interest over the last few years, but now they seem to have settled in. We watch them as they zoom around, bringing in prey, mating and fighting off jackdaws and the occasional marsh harrier. If all goes well, we may expect to see young kestrels in June. If/when they raise their young heads over the rim of the nesting box, we intend to set up the car as a hide and update the pics on this page as things develop.

What's the plan?

No concrete plans for now, although we are seriously thinking of Spain (again) in 2019. The combination of great bird photography opportunities, the climate (at the right time of year), the food/wine and an opportunity for Renee to exercise her Spanish is almost irresistable. During the coming months we expect to stay close to home, making small trips to the Dutch "Wadden" islands.

We still need to add some pics from a trip to Spain in January 2014 - mostly Griffon vultures.
