The Yorkshire Dales
The Dales are characterised by dry-stone walls, field barns, wild flower hay meadows and rolling limestone hills. This nest is in a stone built field barn on the hillside above Hubberholme, in one of the high ventilation holes. Other holes are occupied by Jackdaws.

The Kestrel
The Kestrel's home range is from 1 square km to 10 square km, depending on the availability of food and number of other Kestrels in the area. Their breeding season starts in February. Egg laying is late April to early May. They lay between 3 and 6 eggs with 2 days between each one. Incubation starts after the third egg and lasts 27 to 29 days. The chicks fledge after 4 weeks. Prey includes mice, moles, shrews, rats, voles and small amphibians.
