Coppicing and Kestrels

Thursday, October 11th 2018

We've been hard at work removing yet more Birch from the first section of this year's coppice block (Coupe 5). 

In the process we came across this interesting little fellow, one of the Looper Caterpillars, presumably a moth, if anybody has any ideas please email and let us know ( 

Aside from cutting and burning we were called out just after lunch to attend to an injured Kestrel not far from Cambrai Lines Guardroom.

Holding for photographs was made difficult due to a suspected injury to its leg.

The ring number on the leg shows that this beauty was ringed, alongside five siblings, in the nest on the Garrison by Stacey Adlard on the 1st June 2017. Here's to hoping that this young Kestrel recovers quickly!
