Kestrel

This female Kestrel hunted in front of the new hide at rspb Point of Ayr. She caught a few small mammals but chose to eat from a distance, however she did come close enough for these images.

Great shot of the Kestrel - I like the ones where it is looking over its shoulder.

Glad you liked the cars and corellas - I've been in Oman for a week hence slow reply!

Oh wow!! These are wonderful. I don't have a lens quite big enough to capture nirds of prey, so I am always in awe of shots like yours!
