Falco tinnunculus

Kestrel hunting – Staines Moor

Kestrel hunting – Staines Moor Finally managed to get outside with something other than a wide angle on the camera!  We took a little trip to Staines Moor yesterday to have a look for a short eared owl, no pics of those unfortunately but did spend a good hour watching this kestrel hunting

Kestrel – mid hover

After what felt like months of crap weather I finally made it outside for a few snaps. This kestrel was one of 3 that were grabbing a spot of lunch over a field, dont think the field voles enjoyed it much though.
