A woman phoned the charity after spotting the bird in her garden last Wednesday, and the animal was put in the care of an experienced falconer.

RSPCA animal collection officer Sue Brookes said: ‘She looked in her garden to see why the blackbirds were sounding the alarm and found this beauty attacking a fledgling.

‘She went to rescue the fledgling but sadly it was too late and the kestrel flew onto the fence. She noticed the jesses and offered her arm and it just stepped up onto her.
