You will remember me telling you about the injured male Kestrel, I have been wondering what may have happened to him for some time, my last sighting was when he was sat on the cattle feeding trough with his right wing hanging down. Today I visited my hide and for some reason that I do not know I decided to look under it, and to my amazement I found him, well what was left of him anyway. What a tragic end to such a magnificent creature. I can only assume that a rat came across him and killed him, it is over 100 yards from where I last saw him to my hide.
In his prime
