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.
