  1. There are colonies of Lesser Kestrels that nest on the roofs of several villages near where I live, and I finally went to track them down! Posted 11 days ago

The lesser kestrel is a small falcon. This species breeds from the Mediterranean across southern central Asia to China and Mongolia. It is a summer migrant, wintering in Africa and Pakistan and sometimes even to India and Iraq. It is rare north of its breeding range, and declining in its European range.
