Search­ing for an elu­sive hunter

Landscape (UK) - - Readers' Letters -

When I lived near Read­ing, I was al­ways see­ing kestrels. There was also a feed­ing pro­gramme for the mag­nif­i­cent red kites nearby. I am now liv­ing in Wales, and while I feel so lucky that I have this beau­ti­ful view, I never see the kestrel. I would be in­ter­ested to know if they are be­ing pushed out through com­pe­ti­tion for food or whether they have just re­lo­cated, which is what I hope. Does any­one know if there are any sur­veys be­ing done? The re­cent bird count would not high­light this, as kestrels are not garden birds. I dis­cov­ered LandScape mag­a­zine less than a year ago and can­not be­lieve there has been a mag­a­zine on the mar­ket for so long that cov­ers all my in­ter­ests. Diane Wy­att, by email
