first-winter male Kestrel

















A confiding bird but the light was against me as usual apart from one very short spell when the sun almost appeared for about 15 minutes -- it was only catching small insect prey and spent long periods just sitting looking for prey; most shots with Canon 1D4 and 300 2.8 II no converters

Hi Graham. What a fantastic series of shots. Every one of them is stunning. Such an obliging individual and the pictures must be so rewarding. Truly great work.

I agree with Tim - fantastic series of Ketrel images. They are such beautiful birds, and you have captured them at very close range it seems.
