Kestrel Count

London Wildlife Trust

In 1988 London Wildlife Trust carried out a survey of kestrels that showed them to be living across London, including right in the city centre

The records submitted by you in this survey, along with the base line data already collected, will allow us to build up a picture of any changes in kestrel numbers in London over

the last 25 years; nationally kestrels are declining, and anecdotally this picture is reflected in London too.

To help us know more about kestrels in London today, please fill in the four short sections of this form to tell us about your kestrel observation
