Welcome to my Kestrel Nest Camera.

I have installed cameras inside a kestrel nest so that I can watch these birds closely for my paintings. I share all the best moments here so that you can follow these kestrels as they breed, lay eggs and raise their young.

I have been putting out food for a pair of wild kestrels since 2006 in my garden and it has given me a fascinating insight into their lives.
