Kestrel box up!

We put this one as high as possible, partly because Kestrels seem to like them high, partly to make sure the box would be clear of any machinery being moved in and out of the barn. Kestrels are already being reported on eggs, so we have probably missed this breeding season. But it's a pound to a penny that Stock Doves will breed in it, and that's fine. They are an amber-listed species of conservation concern, and anyway they build up a nice substrate for the next occupants.
Anyway, the box is up, as is the white one, which we wedged in a tree to replace an old one that had disintegrated.
Happy Easter! Happy Pesach! May all your pleasures be egg-shaped.
