Kestrels Brave it Out After Several Brutal Raids on their Nest by Tawny Owls and a Jackdaw


These kestrels manage to hold on to their nest despite a series of brutal raids. Watch on to see kestrel v tawny owl, kestrel vs jackdaw. Sadly the kestrel pair lose two out of seven eggs during the scuffle to defend their precious brood, but they carry on in spite of the problems and go on to incubate the remaining five.

Watch as first a tawny owl barges past the female kestrel, ignoring her screeches of protests, and crushes an egg in the scuffle that follows. Not long afterwards, the kestrel nest is raided again, this time by a jackdaw, and yet another egg is lost. Then the tawny owl is back again and tragically destroys yet another precious egg .


But, where most birds would have abandoned their eggs, this stalwart kestrel pair carry on!

This brought tears to my eyes. So many emotions. She is a persevering brave fighting mom. She loves those babies so much. 🥺🥺 How she fights for them is inspiring and uplifting. It reminds me to be brave. And continue on. I'm a burd lover myself, I have 2 cockatiels and their my world. I would do anything for them. In an odd way this video has really really helped me. This is amazing. Just amazing. Breathtaking.
