Beckton Kestrel






Received a call on Friday from Thames Water that a Kestrel had been found trapped unfortunately, further to this I learnt on arrival to pick it up that it had been in this position for possibly 4 days.

It is the male from the nest box that I watch who has produced a good number of young Kestrels in the last few years.


Not looking good



Well done to Marlon at Thames Water and whoever found it, as I picked it up not surprisingly it was thin and obviously very weak so took it straight to South Essex Wildlife Hospital. 

Being checked out



Very dehydrated it was also then given some food straight away, initial observation was no injuries, hopefully it will pull through.


When he was better, as you can see a good provider for the female.
