The “Théding Falcons” present: the “Kestrels of Planois“, in collaboration with Christophe (pseudo “Christophe88”).

The nesting box is located in the hamlet of Planois, in the village of Basse sur le Rupt in Lorraine (department of Vosges [88]). It is a very large mountain village of 894 inhabitants at an altitude of 409 to 1060 meters (650 meters for the nest box). This installation for kestrels weighing 15 kg is placed in a plane tree at a height of 10 meters. On the same tree there are also 2 nest boxes for blue tits.

This is the third year that the nest box has been in place and it is still very busy when the falcons return, but unfortunately it has not been chosen for nesting yet. In 2023, the nest box has evolved to try to attract falcons. Before, it was of the “open” type; now it is in a “closed” configuration, with only a 10 cm passage accessible through a “balcony”. With the materials used, it is integrated into nature.

Thanks to the expertise of Christophe (pseudo “Christophe88”) in the manufacture and installation of nesting boxes, powered by “les faucons de Théding”, we invite you to share the observation of this family of Vosges kestrels thanks to 2 cameras (indoor + outdoor) connected 24/7. The reference of the cameras is Hikvision DS-2DE2A404IW-DE3.
