The common kestrel (Falco tinnunculus) is a bird of prey species belonging to the kestrel group of the falcon family Falconidae. It is well known, as it has also conquered cities and urban spaces as living space and can often be observed during its typical "hovering flight". It is widespread in Europe, Asia, and Africa and occasionally reaches the east coast of North America.
From the 1960s, the common kestrel, a skilled mouse hunter, became increasingly rare in Switzerland, not least due to the loss of suitable breeding sites. Bird conservationists subsequently installed nesting boxes, which led to a continuous increase in the breeding population since the turn of the millennium. On the DOTTIKON company premises, too, we can regularly look forward to new kestrel hatchlings.
