Three weeks ago a young kestrel was found and rescued on Lihou Island and brought into the GSPCA.

The young bird which was called Sue and since the 1st July the bird has been hand reared and then placed in a rehabilitation aviary.

Last week when Sue was checked over what was thought to be a she is in fact a he, and he was rung with an ID ring before his release.

In the last few days Sue was deemed fit enough to be returned to where he was found and we are pleased to announce that he was released back on Lihou earlier this week.
