Burnley centre Kestrels, July 2013

A group of very obliging Kestrels photographed at the point of fledging
in Burnley town centre. Five young in total, three on the wing on the
evening of my visit, with two others remaining at the nest site.

Not the best place to land!

Not quite getting the hang of landing!

I returned the following day (27th July) and only the runt of the brood was
left in the nest.
