Breeding success of the kestrel Falco tinnunculus in Germany: Results 1985-1994

Breeding success of the kestrel Falco tinnunculus in Germany: Results 1985-1994

Journal fuer Ornithologie 138(1): 73-82

We compare breeding biology and success of 17 Kestrel subpopulations in Germany in 1985-1994. A total sample of 3,017 breeding attempts and 11,423 fledged young were analyzed by our study group. Breeding success was not parallel over years and study areas; differences were up to four fledged young per successful pair, area and year. Within areas the differences reached 2,5 fledged young per successful pair. The most striking result was the influence of nesting site on breeding success. Clutches in sheltered sites in buildings or in nest boxes always reached mean values above 4 fledged young per successful pair, open nest sites like crow nests, however, were most clearly below this value.
