The Falcons of Théding: the kestrel. Welcome to the site of enthusiasts

Every spring, since 1996, a couple of kestrel comes to the attic of an old farmhouse in Théding to give life to nestlings. You can follow the kestrel in this natural adventure in real time or live the emotions of past years again thanks to the archives.

What are you going to find on this dedicated site to kestrel?

You can watch the live nest of the raptor couple, thanks to the active webcam during the months of March to July. But also, the photo and video galleries of the past years as well as the history that brings together the dates of laying, hatching and flights.

Novelty 2019!

It is now possible to visit the interior of a connected nest box ; The intimate life of a blue tit family awaits you here, right from the construction of the nest to the flight of the chicks. You can follow live nesting birds during the months of February to June or relive the adventure through the photo and vidéo galleries.
