Kestrels are found almost everywhere in Europe, often sighted high in the sky as if pinned to one spot, there familiar style of hunting makes them easy to recognize ( hovering ). At approx 34cm length and wingspan between 65cm – 80cm.
Milly has been successfully trained to hover which is a wonderful sight especially as she will show this just a few feet from your head! Waiting for her reward. On windy days Milly will hover upto a 100ft above you, then stoop down to your gloved hand!!
She is our smallest bird with a big character! Wonderful to watch hover or zipping round the sky.
