Aston University kestrels are ringed for identification

What started off as a missing piece of glass in a technician’s study room at Aston University, has since become the nesting place for several generations of kestrels over an estimated 30 year period.

 

Working with the RSPB, The Wildlife Trust, and the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO), this year’s chicks have now been ringed for identification purposes – to monitor their movements and contribute to conservation research .
