Expect anything to happen anytime during our excursion.

Today, we had the surprise to see the rare Mauritius Kestrel. Thanks to Martina Brenneke's instant reaction, she could catch that moment when this extremely rare bird of prey sat there to watch out for small birds, geckos to feed on.

In 1973, the Kestrel was on the brink of extinction with only 9 birds left in the wild. Thanks to the tremendous efforts of the Mauritian Wildlife Foundation and other dedicated people the number of birds increased to 350 in 2000.

It's to be noted that the kestrel doesn't build its own nest but prefers to nest on cliffwalls or nests fron other birds.
