A Kestrel is kept as a pet, smaller animals are fed to it, including a small bird, and the bird is killed in the end.

The boys shower together after playing football and Billy is forced to stay in a cold shower for an extended period of time as a form of punishment, during which time he is very distressed. There’s child nudity in this scene

No, but some could be upset about a boy sleeping in the same bed with his brother, and helping him get undressed.
