A kestrel found unable to fly in a car park in Grouville has been released back into the wild.

The falcon was found underweight and with a swollen eye.

As a bird of prey the kestrel uses its eyesight to hunt for prey, and with a swollen eye it was unable to hunt and eat. Without eating it lost energy and became grounded.

JSPCA fed him through a tube as they treated him.
